7th grade homework week of 1/9

7th graders are reminded to keep making three flashcards per night this week.  They are graded every day, so this “small” assignment does add up.


Also, 7th graders are reminded of the essay due on Wednesday – 5 paragraphs on their outside reading book (historical fiction).  The essay structure is in all students’ notebooks and was reviewed again on Friday.  The thesis statement needs to be about three things the author did well when writing the book, with at least ONE of these three things being an attempt at historical accuracy. 


Late passes will not be accepted for the essay, as relayed to the students on January 3rd, and reiterated daily.  Every day late will be 10 points off. 


The essay is part of the mid-term exam grade.
