7th Grade

1st period:I will collect your Olympian god/dess graphic organizer Thursday.  Get all the cells filled in.

Continue drafting your original myth.

8th Grade

1. Fourth period Love or Repellent Potion recipes are due Wednesday for 4th period and Thursday for 6th period.  Remember it should look like a recipe with the ingredients listed first, then followed by the directions that include tons of cooking words (see your journal).

2. Unpaired/pairs write: Select a pair listed in your journal.  Compose a narrative describing how the  two items struggle to get together (this prompt is inspired by Lysander’s famous line “The course of true love never did run smooth”).  Your piece must have at least 3 paragraphs: beginning, middle, end.  You may write it in verse, so at least 3 stanzas.

One of my favorites from the past was about chips being sealed in a metallic bag, yearning to  be joined with dip, which was covered with menacing, hateful Saran Wrap—until Super Bowl Sunday! This is due Friday, February 24.

3. New vocab words: i. expound  ii. transfigured  iii. constancy   iv. mirth  v. nuptial  vi. toil

vii. audacious  viii. eloquence   xi. discourse  x. circumference

The one exercise is due and the quiz is on Friday, 2/24.
