This is our second-to-last class before the end of the year.  After some silent reading, we headed to the computer lab to finish up any missing assignments or blog posts.  Remember that you want to go into your final exam with as strong a mark as possible.

We will have our final Lit Circle meetings on Wednesday.  All groups should be finished their novels for this class.

I will be collecting all novels, copies ofThe Crucible, and any other items that belong to me or the school, during Wednesday’s class.

Are you studying?  You should be!  Review those terms, review the practice exams, review what we did during the year.  Give yourself the best opportunity to succeed on the final exam!

Things are winding up quickly around here.  We have finished watching The Crucible and you began working on a reflection on the movie on your blogs today.

We also had our 3rd Lit Circle meeting today. You discussed conflict and theme in your novels.  Be sure that you handed in your discussion points at the end of the class.  A copy of today’s Lit Circle agenda is on the handouts page.

I also gave 2 practice exams today for you to use as you begin studying…. which you should definitely be doing!!!  You will need to bring these exams for our tutorials.  Check the school website for the exam and tutorial schedule.
