English – Week of March 9, 2020

Students should read for 30 minutes every night for their homework. This is the main homework I will assign, so the expectation is that students are doing it. I am happy to make recommendations.

Students are beginning their next unit: Growing as Readers. Students have selected engaging and challenging books. Next, students will begin interrogating their reading process. Students will spend this week reading their books, tracking their confusion, and working through plot basics.
