Week of April 25th to April 29th

All classes will be beginning new units this week! We have put a lot of work into the texts we are currently reading so it should be fulfilling and exciting to finish them and begin something new!

Honors English 9:
We will finish Great Expectations on Thursday. A paper and a test are to follow so begin thinking about what you would like to write your paper on. We have talked about symbolism throughout the novel (light and dark), unmet expectations, the fight between good and evil within characters and many other themes. Think about these to help you brainstorm.
The rest of the week will revolve around preparing for the Great Expectations test as well as the expository essay you will write.

Important dates
Great Expectations test Wednesday 5/4
Expository essay due Friday 5/6

English 9:
We finished The Outsiders last week and this week we will prepare for our final quiz. The quiz on chapters 9-12 will be Wednesday 4/27. 
We will also finish with our last 2 types of complements: predicate nominatives and predicate adjectives. There will be a test on all complements (direct objects, indirect objects, predicate nominatives and predicate adjectives) on Friday 4/29.

Monday: Finish Outsiders packet
Tuesday: Study for Outsiders quiz
Wednesday: Study complements

We will finish watching Troy and discuss its historical accuracy on Monday. On Tuesday, we will begin reading The Adventures of Odysseus. We will continue reading throughout the week.
