I am typing this from the basement because there is a tornado on the ground in a nearby city. Scary stuff! Is this spring or late fall?
One more full week before a break for Thanksgiving. I cannot WAIT! And the kids can't either. So here's what's coming up this week.
1. My juniors are turning in their final research essays tomorrow (these are the ones that were on topics related to the 1920s). So this means I will spend my entire week grading....and grading....and grading. I want to get them all done and returned (all 70 of them) before we leave for Thanksgiving.
2. That means we are on to my favorite unit in English III-GATSBY!
3. My seniors are also finishing up their final presentations for The Lovely Bones. They are working in groups on Prezis, researching related topics to the novel (like crime scene investigation, cultural views of the afterlife, etc) and applying them to the book. They will present these Thursday and Friday.
So what's on tap for your week?
