Today in class we completed some prewriting for the essay that you will compose tomorrow (STAAR Preparation Essay 1 Rubric).

I also told you about the Dracula-themed critical reading exam (multiple choice) that you will take on Monday instead of a quiz; you’ll read three different kinds of passages (a poem, a nonfiction article, and a selection from a novel that is not Dracula) and answer some STAAR-style questions.

Homework for tonight is the next chapter of Dracula (Dracula Reading Guide – Chapter 19).
