Happy Homecoming! This week we will wrap up the unit on Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Hebrew literature. Students have a test scheduled for Tuesday, September 27th. Students have received the review information sheet, but if they have misplaced it, I have posted it below. We will dive into Ancient Greek and Roman Literature starting on Wednesday, September 28th.
Students have their vocabulary quiz covering Unit 2 on Thursday (because of the Homecoming schedule). Remember that it is important to study for vocabulary outside of class in order to be successful.
Reminder: Project Proposals are due by Wednesday, October 5th. Proposal guidelines are listed in the Independent Reading Project documents, but if you would like to see examples, ask Ms. Schmit to see the proposal binder.
I have also posted the assignment folder for Critical Response #1; this assignment is listed under Week 9. If students have finished this assignment, they are free to turn it in. We will have a couple workshop days before the due date, but I strongly encourage students to get started on this assignment as soon as possible. They may then use the workshop days to clean up drafts or have other students take a look at them. If students feel good about their critical response essays, they may turn them in and use the workshop days to work on their Independent Reading Projects.
