Update to Independent Reading Project

Since this is a long weekend, students obviously can't turn in their final drafts on Monday as planned. The final drafts will instead be collected on Wednesday. Because of this shift, I am no longer requiring the formal book talk. Instead, it has become an "optional" assignment that will be for extra credit. I strongly suggest that students do the book talk, particularly those who are earning grades below a C.

Green sheet is due Wednesday as usual.

There will be a quiz on either Wednesday or Thursday on the "unacceptable errors" list that we have been going over in English class this week. These "unacceptable errors" will be implemented in all classes beginning next marking period. Teachers will be holding students accountable for correctly spelling these words in all types of writing. I will post the list in a separate posting.
