Students have completed their literary essays and we are now moving on to our final unit, which is a multigenre reading and writing project.  The majority of the homework for the next two and a half weeks will be reading.  Students need to have their books completed by the last week of school.  They will have time to read at school, but they will also need to read each night for homework.

We are currently working in groups to create movie trailers for The Outsiders.  The students are doing a great job and are all on the filming aspects of their projects.

We are involved in an exciting project right now - we are filming a whole-class movie trailer for The Outsiders.  There is not a lot of homework right now, with the exception of bringing in costumes and props.  So far this has been an awesome experience!
