In the advanced class this week we are starting poetry. The students have to bring a poem from the Poetry 180 web site that they like Tuesday. We will share poems, work on literary terms, and continue to read poems I select in class. On Friday i am having the students begin reading Shattering Glass in class. This should take about three days. Following this we will compare Lord of the Flies and Shattering Glass.
In the ninth grade class chapters 21-24 are due Tuesday from Shattering Glass and 25-28 are due Thursday. Frida, Marlas Jackson will be working with the students on their quilt pieces based on Richard Wright's haikus.
