This weekend

Students should be finishing first drafts of responses to text on their independent reading project. I gave them two 80 minute periods to work on this -- first prewriting and then drafting. The students who had their books read had no trouble getting most or all of this done in class. There were, however, quite a few students having difficulty as a result of not being caught up on reading. So, some students need to finish the book AND do the essay this weekend.
