Thursday, November 19

We began today’s class by reviewing the Hot Zone List 3 vocabulary words. You will have a quiz over those on Monday – I highly recommend that you take the practice quiz.

Tomorrow in class, students will write an expository essay for a major grade. Here is the prompt: Altruism Essay Prompt. And here is the rubric: Altruism Essay Rubric. You may start thinking about what you would like to write about, but the actual composition must happen in class tomorrow.

For classwork, I gave students time to begin reading the essay “Wild Flavor” and work on the reading guide: Wild Flavor – Abridged Wild Flavor Reading Guide. This will be due on Monday, and there will be no additional homework over the weekend.

Homework for tonight is Reading Guide 7: The Hot Zone Reading Guide 7
