Week of February 18th

This week classes will be continuing work with bellringers and focusing on reading passages and finding evidence. This is a preliminary skill to successful Text Dependent Analysis writing, which both English 7 and English 8 are writing in their Reading classes.


English 7
Students will complete the Week 8 Paragraph bellringer this week and it will be due on Thursday, 2/21/19. Mid-week, students will read part 7, the final chapter, of "The Run" series. At the end of the week students will read a PSSA-style passage titled "The Red Scooter." Students will need to read, annotate, and answer comprehension questions in preparation for a TDA on this and another reading ("The Shakespearean Mouse"), which will be read early next week.

Important announcement: I have noticed students having a difficult time identifying and correcting subject-verb agreement. As an add-on to this unit, which was completed in December, quizzes on subject verb agreement will be given periodically beginning the week of March 4th. These quizzes at times might be unannounced. Please email me at mzangari@northschuylkill.net with any questions or concerns.
