It is great to be back, but that was a wonderful LONG track out!
We are picking up where we left off in LA with speeches and author’s purpose. We will be reading and annotating two speeches next week, President Obama’s Victory Speech and FDR’s Day of Infamy speech. While doing that, the students will begin to brainstorm for their next writing assignment where they will be asked to write their own dream speech. These are always really cool and allow students to be creative and dream big! The assignment and rubric are posted on my wiki.
I will be passing back the “I Have a Dream” quizzes from last quarter on Monday. Corrections for this quiz will be due the following week.
My wiki (mrsbarrowsclass.pbworks.com) has been updated with homework and classwork for next week. Have a wonderful weekend!
