When they are done, they should choose another novel to read so that they always have a novel. They will only do the project on this first one though, this trimester.

The information on this webpage is my notes about what we are doing this week. I post about once a week. What the students should be writing in their planners is always more current and the better source of information, especially if the student is keeping up to date on their planner. 

 

Also, I apologize to my students in periods 2, 3 and 8. When I post things to this website, it sometimes posts your information in the GATE class section and if I don't catch it, you might not see it. I'm sorry about this and will try my best to catch it when it happens.
