Advanced Composition: Please remember to bring a book to read for SSR, your textbook, and your CHARGED ChromeBook to class each day! We will continue with another example of an argument essay: Martin Luther King's “I Have a Dream” speech. Because of the holiday break, there is NO journal entry required this week! If we have time, you may work on your definition essay which is due on Friday, December 1st.
American Short Story: We will continue with the third unit, the 1970s and 1980s, but we are a bit behind due to several college visits. I asked you to read “Detroit Skyline, 1949” before coming to class on Tuesday, and because we will lose some class time on Tuesday, we may not have time to do more than discuss this story. If we DO have time, we will also read “American Horse.” Don't forget to bring your book to class EVERY DAY! Remember, you will be writing an essay for this unit, so taking notes as we read will probably be helpful! [Hint: keep track of the vocabulary as this WILL be part of the unit tests.]
Art History I: This week we will continue with The Baroque Era: the 17th Century, with a documentary: Simon Schama's Power of Art: “Bernini.” We will also talk about our upcoming field trip with Teacher James' art class to the Chrysler Museum on Thursday, November 30th during blocks 7 and 8. We may also have time to work on the VAMFA assignment which is due on Friday, December 1st.
Fundamentals of Composition: Please remember to bring a book to read for SSR. You also need to bring Strategies for Successful Writing and your CHARGED ChromeBook to class EVERY day. This week we will continue with Chapter 10: “Comparison—Showing Relationships,” by looking at a couple of examples of comparison in our textbook:
- “Barbie Doesn't Live Here Anymore”
- “Private Language, Public Language”
- “Art Form for the Digital Age”
The Word I—the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible: Reminder: you are supposed to make at least ONE comment on each of the VoiceThreads from your classmates before class on Monday! This week we turn to Unit Seven A: Writings and Wisdom:
- Chapter 14: Songs and Poetry
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a great holiday weekend!
