Poe and Propaganda Continued

Students should review notes for each day. 

Beginning this week I shall provide opportunities for those students whose grades are below passing to do extra assignments - NOT EXTRA CREDIT- but, an opportunity to improve grades. Students with grades above 80 will have the option of doing these assignments.

Students should be accessing and using to practice for the EOCT. This is an excellent resource paid for by the school. If you do not have access to the account set up, you need to obtain the initial log in information to set up your account. 

Everything we are doing this week and next will culminate in a Lesson Based Question (LBQ)... students need to pay attention in class each day.... and review notes each evening. I will give out research assignments for each story read. Students will keep these and study them for the LBQ- which is OPEN NOTE/DOCUMENT.
