Week of 11/12

Essential Question: What provokes a change in a person or character? This week will be reading about the Victorian Era and Charles Dickens to prepare us for our upcoming reading of "A Christmas Carol." RL8.1 Students will be using Alphaboxes to find text evidence from informational articles. RL8.2 Students will be using the "pizza" strategy for determing the central idea of a text.  

Writing: Informational writing centers on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Dodgeball tournament and spelling bee will be this Friday.

Congratulations to Josh King, Jabez Marion, and James Kim for being our class representatives for the spelling bee. Good luck on Friday. 

Don't forget to buy your favorite teacher feathers for .25 each. The fundraiser ends Wednesday of this week.
