Tuesday, January 15

We started today with a few important announcements:

  1. Next week, we will begin reading The Hot Zone. I recommend trying to find your own copy of the book that you can write in. There should be quite a few available at Half Price Books, or you can order one from the school for $8.50 (please try to bring exact change).
  2. We will have an extra credit movie this week — Selma, the story of Martin Luther King Jr.’s march from Selma. Because of the early release day, we’ll show it on Thursday after school. If you can’t make it, you are allowed to watch it at home with a parent signature. This extra credit will apply to your quiz over grammar on Tuesday.

During class today, we discussed the ending of The Count of Monte Cristo and had a lesson on appositives (under the grammar section of the website).
