October 18, 2007

October 18, 2007
Today we continued to share presentations of the term group inquiry projects. Students also worked on their capitalization exercise (20 points -- due next time).

Don't forget to return your progress reports (received October 16) signed by a parent or guardian.

If you haven't handed in your reading bingo or your term group project, see me.

Students who have not yet completed and submitted the GoMyAccess Essay about the influence of the Character Traits of a character from The Outsiders, or who wish to receive a higher grade on the assignment may go online to write and revise the essay. These must be completed by October 24th. (If you didn't complete and submit the essay, it will show up as zeros on PowerGrade for the two scores on Character Traits.)

The first term ends October 26.

Period 2 finished reading The Outsiders today. The other period are near to the end.
On the 24th and 26th we will watch the movie based on the book, and make comparisons between the two.
