  • English/Reading Plans April 27th-May 1st

    Hi Everyone, 


    Here are the plans for this week:  April 27th-May 1st:


    I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend. I was grateful for no snow this morning....

    • Vocabulary week #14 due Tuesday, via Google Classroom

    • We are going to continue with poetry this week by focusing on the villanelle.  Villanelles can be serious, humorous, light hearted, and tell a story.  I highly recommend that you write your villanelle on something you have an interest in. Whether it be a sport, activity, hobby, or time of year.  Please take time to read the two published villanelles I include to help you through the process. “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night” by Dylan Thomas is one of my absolute favorite poems.  Your villanelle will be due Friday, via Google Classroom.  

    • MUG Test #13 due Tuesday, via Google Classroom (This was posted last Friday)

    • Read chapters 24-27 in Chains (pgs. 149-169).

    • Reading Journal #25 due Friday, May 1st (You can do this entry on Chains if you would like).
