LA Update

Big week next week! On Tuesday of next week, students will be taking the author’s purpose/speech major assessment. They should be very clear as to what will appear on the assessment. They have a list of vocabulary terms that will appear on the assessment, there will be a section on speeches and a section on identifying bias.
Speeches are also due midweek. We will be revising the speeches tomorrow, Saturday, so a complete rough draft should be here tomorrow. We will be editing them on Monday, and students will be giving their speeches to the class Wednesday – Friday of next week. There are two exemplars on my website that we have used during class and students may use as reference.

Check my website for next week’s homework, rubrics, handouts, etc!

Have a great weekend!
