Today we talked about your final exam essay (Fall 2019 Pre-AP ELA 1 Essay Prompt), which you will write on Monday during class. You can bring that paper with you so long as it doesn’t have a rough draft written on it. The essay is worth 50% of your final exam grade, so please prepare!
We also went over the last CMC vocabulary list — we won’t have a quiz over those words, but you will see them on your final exam.
Today students are reading and listening to a famous Edgar Allen Poe short story with some strong thematic connections to The Count of Monte Cristo, “The Cask of Amontillado.”Click here for the audio.

Today we talked about conjunctions — here are those notes (Conjunctions). Please remember to finish your reading guide for The Count of Monte Cristo tomorrow — I am giving you advance notice that there will be a reading check.
Welcome back! After our vocabulary quiz, students had a chance to get started on reading the next section of CMC (CMC Reading Guide 6) — that homework is due on Wednesday, and there is a good chance that there will be a reading check, so please make sure that you are reading carefully.
