We will be starting The Hot Zone on the week of February 26. You have a few options for getting a book; you can check on out from the school, you can buy one yourself (here is the Amazon link), or you can bring $6 to school by Wednesday and I’ll order one for you.
A bit of an update — we have been asked to wait just a little bit to give you the practice STAAR exam. So instead, on Monday, you will have a quiz over Hot Zone Vocabulary List 1 (and only those words — no review words, grammar multiple choice, or sentences).
All of the Hot Zone vocabulary lists have been loaded into Vocabulary.com, so you can practice to help you study.
Please make sure that you read Dracula Chapter 22 and complete the reading guide for homework.
On Thursday, we went over another poem and some multiple choice questions (The Giaour). Please don’t throw this out — you will need it for something next week.
Homework was Chapter 21 of Dracula.
