Hi folks,Remember to finish up My Sister's Keeper tonight at home. Our final discussion class will be tomorrow so have your HOTS questions ready to present (you know who you are).  The novel test will be on Friday, May 9th. (The 2 of you in Ottawa, don't worry, you can write it when you return) As we near the end of the novel unit, I've asked you to begin thinking of a theme/issue/question to focus your multigenre project around. Keep thinking! You will be getting more info on this next week.

Good work on your Macbeth essay introductions today. Good peer conferencing too. For those I did not get to meet with today, you will be first up tomorrow, however, if there's no school, it'll be Thursday. If there is no school, I strongly recommend you take an hour or two at home to work on the draft of your body paragraphs. You will have Thursday's class too but this won't be enough time in my opinion. Remember, all body paragraphs are due Friday, Mar. 28th.

Hi everyone,Today we went over how to write your thesis statement and how to support your thesis statement. You were also given a bit of time to work on drafting your thesis statement. I got to check in with quite a few of you and look forward to meeting with the rest of the class tomorrow. Good work so far! Tomorrow is a lab day; the last one. Be sure to have your 2 external sources printed as well as your essay outline ready for class on Friday. This is a formative check point.  I've attached the handouts we went over in class today.
