On Friday, students passed in their first creative extension.  Today, students received an Article of the Week, which is due this Friday.  This AoW is a bit different.  Students must highlight the article, but they do not have to complete a close reading.  Instead, they will complete a graphic organizer that accompanies the article.  For each behaviour in the chart, students must find two examples from the play that match.
