Notes for the week of January 22-26

Please remember that Wednesday, Jan 24th will be a regular day instead of an early release as previously planned.

Students are working on a project in class where they are reading a persuasive article then analyzing it using different methods. Each day will be a different assignment and they should be finishing it in class. If they don’t finish each day, it is homework. I have told them that it is easier to complete it each night they don’t finish so they don’t have 4 days worth of assignments to complete in a single night. They will have about 20 minutes on Thursday to complete any day that is incomplete, but that’s not a lot of time. Please encourage them to finish any work each night so they won’t be stressed about it come Thursday.
