Period 2 and 5

Today we had an interesting day!

We discussed the questions from Monte Cristo chapters 40-50 and turned them in.

Next we prepared for the visit from a professional published poet. Each group was asked to read a poem by the author, analyze it and prepare a poster in order to "teach" to the rest of the class.

Have a great day! Warren

In the Honors classes today we did a bit of catch up. We handed back a lot of work that was graded and sitting in the folder. All students got new grade reports and we discussed their in class essays that were written last class.

Then we went over the chapters 41-45 of the Count of Monte Cristo. Some of the kids were confused about the telegraph part, but now they know that Dantes sent false information for Debray to tell to Mrs. Danglars, and she would tell her husband. It is all Dantes plan to make Danglars lose money and ruin him.

Lastly we did "Calling Home" in the interactive reader. It was discussed and graded in class.

No reading this weekend, but we will finish Monte Criso in two weeks, so projects are due then!

Later Warren!

In all Honors classes today we started CAT6 Activities again with #11. Then we had a quiz and discussion of Monte Cristo Chapters 21-30.

We started "Last Night of the World" assignment by completing activities 1-5 on the handout. This is not on weblockers, but can be picked up in class if you are absent.

Take the night off from Monte Cristo or catch up if you are behind.

Have a great day! Warren
