2-3 English 8

Thursday, September 21st, 2017: Were you away today? Students handed in their homework today, and we went to the library. Have a great weekend!

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017: Well done, everyone!  For next class, write one paragraph discussing ONE of the man’s character traits (your choice of character trait). This needs to be a ROUGH DRAFT ONLY. It may be handwritten or typed – you can write it underneath your chart from today, if you want (the chart is NOT homework). Due on Thursday, September 20th. If you need to access the story again, you can find it here: http://aashley.weebly.com/uploads/4/3/8/2/4382474/side_bet_short_story.pdf. If you want to see today’s chart, it’s here: englishwithliao.wikispaces.com

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017: Were you away today? We discussed plagiarism, and students received a Plagiarism Contract that they will get signed by a parent/guardian by the end of September. There are extras on the shelf here in the classroom. Also, we started reading a story, called “Side Bet.” If you were away, you can read the story opening at englishwithliao.wikispaces.com. SEE YOU ON THURSDAY!

Also, here are the links to the websites that I showed you today:

Thursday, September 7th, 2017: It was so nice to meet you today! Please bring a silent reading book next class!
