Today we wrote the first timed, in-class LEQ essay! We will write our second on Friday of this week and ONE of those will end up as your graded LEQ 1. We also wrapped up our DocBlock lit circle from Friday looking at a variety of voices from the Jacksonian era.
Tomorrow will be the ACT exam most of the day for all Juniors. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO BRING A PHOTO ID!!! Wednesday we will return to normal classroom business for a couple of days. Please make sure you are keeping up with the Chapter readings due this week! Check the class calendar on this website if you aren't sure what is due and when.
Next Monday we will have our first in-class scored discussion. You will find the two reading selections which will be the focus of the discussion posted at the top of Period 5. You need to read both of the opposing historians and complete the pre-writing assignment by class next Tuesday. The directions for the pre-write and a student sample are provided with the readings under Period 5.
