PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS SCHOOL ON TUESDAY THE 17TH!!! Friday will be an A day to balance out the week.
Second Semester Schedules: I will have your schedules printed with any unassigned blocks listed for you on Tuesday. You will need to look at the master schedule and choose classes and workshops [if not already listed] for any unassigned blocks. Please note that you need to take required classes when you can fit them in so that we are NOT struggling senior year to get these in so that you can graduate. If I have chosen a class for you, I will not be too interested in making a change to something else without a VERY good reason! Please note that some classes have pre-requisites, and if you have not completed the pre-requisites, you cannot take the class. I would like all of your choices by Thursday afternoon, at the latest, so that I can see what classes may need to be cancelled due to low/lack of enrollment.

Advanced Composition: This week we will finish up the I-Search presentations and then get a jump on American Literature [the follow-up class] by changing textbooks and watching The New World. There will be NO journal entries due this week—we have finished with that!
Art History I: This week we will finish the final presentations, and then the two chapters we had left from last week:
- Gainsborough: Mary, Countess How
- Landscape: View-Painting and the Grand Tour.
Film as Literature: We will be viewing the final projects, A Recipe for a Film, and then we will have a chance to see 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film we had to cut out due to weather earlier in the semester!
Fundamentals of Composition: We will see the remaining final literature projects—two of which are board games to play! There are NO journal entries due as we are done with that. We may even be able to get a start on World Literature, the follow-up class to this one, by changing textbooks and getting started on Troy.
Mystery Fiction: We will finish up the final project presentations, A Recipe for Death, and then watch a last “mystery” to finish out the week. You have asked me for something funny, so I am checking my film collection to see what I have that will be both a mystery and a comedy… There will be a final blog post due this week—your original responses are due by Wednesday, January 18th, and your follow-up responses are due by Friday, January 20th.
ONLINE CLASSES: Please make sure you are following the pacing guide for the class; remember, regardless of whether or not WE have class/school, Virtual Virginia is available, and you may have assignments due!
Let’s finish the first semester with a great week!
Teacher Barb :)
