All students in my Grade 10 classes were given a print out of their current mark today. Any assignment in the Classwork category cannot be passed in late, however late assignments (such as Articles of the Week) can be passed in. They will not be marked unless they are needed for credit recovery at the end of the semester. Also, all assignments must be passed in to qualify for an academic incentive on the exam.

We started the short story unit yesterday with "Charles" by Shirley Jackson. We will be focusing on one short story element and one reading strategy for each story we read, and at the end of the unit you will be tested on the short story elements in each story. Keep good notes and don't lose your copies of each story.

I've attached a copy of "Charles" for those of you who need it to finish your homework.
