  • 3rd Quarter Home Reading Log (HRL): The 3rd Quarter HRL has been given out.  Students will keep track of the number of minutes they read weekly.  IMPORTANT:  NO HRLs will be accepted late…they must be completed before they come to class and be turned in at the beginning of class to get credit.  *All HRLs are due the last day of the week that class meets.
  • This quarter we are working on “Figurative Language” used in stories, like:  simile, metaphor, alliteration, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, personification, idiom. The HRL has all the directions for what is required each week.  An extra copy of the HRL is below:

  • Weekly Planner Sheet This is a document for students who have lost their planner.  It’s a sheet they can print out weekly and use to record their homework.  The template mimics our planners.  Since students are required to use a planner – this template is offered as a replacement for those who may need it.

PERIODS 2 & 5  :

  • Students completed the reading activity on “The Defender” as they did a close reading activity.  They identified a paragraph, sentence, and word that stood out to them and  then explained why.
  • We began our theme comparison of Breaking Through  and the movie McFarland, USA.  Students filled out a Venn Diagram for the themes around: “family”, “Determination/Perseverance”, and “Overcoming  Obstacles”.  We brainstormed various themes we noticed for each in Breaking  Through.  They will will find a common theme in the movie and  then evidence for how each theme was shown differently in each story.  A  copy of the  Venn Diagram can  be found  here:
