Happy return from Spring Break! I hope you all got to relax and do something interesting! We had quite an adventure in Japan (if you’re interested, you can check out the trip blog at http://www.cardinalstakeflight.com).
I wanted to apologize and give you an update – I have quite a few assignments graded, but Gradespeed has not been allowing me to enter new assignments since before Spring Break. I have contacted our tech support, and the person who is supposed to be able to fix it should be returning tomorrow. As soon as it’s up, I’ll put those grades in.
As far as our assignment today goes, we are beginning a new text – The Glass Castle – and we’re starting by considering some pieces of nonfiction that deal with contemporary American poverty. Today we looked at a documentary – A Place at the Table – which discusses food insecurity, and students worked on a viewing guide (A Place at the Table – Guided Notes).
No homework for tonight, but please make sure to bring your copy of The Hot Zone tomorrow if you checked one out.
