LA Update

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We are going to begin poetry this week in language arts class. We will focus on narrative poetry beginning with Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village. Then, we will get a taste of several more contemporary narrative poetry books such as Crossover, Brown Girl Dreaming, and Love That Dog.

Class will focus on everything from identifying adversities faced by the characters, to determining the theme of the poem and identifying figurative language. Each night’s homework is to complete any classwork that was not completed during class. Please use Google Classroom for digital graphic organizers and digital copies of the text.

Have a wonderful week!
