Be sure to give your parents the letter from Ms. Hammons and me about our new unit of study: war-torn literature. Ask them to sign it down near our signatures; I want to know that your folks are informed about what you’re doing in language arts class.
Remember, as you read your war-torn literature novel, jot down key words and page numbers where you find content that illustrates the five themes: cruelty/injustices, coping with evil, mistreatment because of religion, race, etc., courage and wisdom, and unsung heroes. Use this graphic organizer as your book mark.
I’m thrilled that some of you are finished with your MSND/Shakespeare project already! The rest of you must have done by Monday, March 19.
The final MSND/Shakespeare test is Friday, March 16. We’ll review tomorrow.
