Our first unit is dealing with the parts of speech... basically nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
We will have bi-weekly summative quizzes on ACT vocabulary words.
Short stories will be our next unit. We will be focusing on different parts of literature... characterization, setting, mood, character, etc.
10/21/15: New 9 weeks! We are one-fourth of the way through the school year! This week we are working on written expression. We went to the media center before fall break and Mrs. Messer gave us a lesson on "banned books." Students now have a writing prompt that asks whether or not something should be banned... and they are answering why or why not... and giving reasons. Next, we will be reading a short novel. We will be focusing on different literary elements such as characterization and irony. The novel is one of the Bluford series books that is written in easier to read language and takes place at an inner city school, modern times. I look forward to the many discussions we will have on this book!
