6th Grade:

We are completing our unit on courage in the face of adversity. We will begin Greek Mythology next week. The students will be separated into their own Greek City States. They will complete their mythology work together.

7th Grade:

We are nearing the end of Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. The students will be participating in a Socratic Seminar (an entirely student led discussion) before March is over. I look forward to the great discussions they will have with each other.

8th Grade:

We have begun reading Night. The memoir format helps put the students right into the emotional and courageous journey of Elie Wiesel. The students are annotating their novels for their final paper.

Important Dates:

7th Grade: 3/28 – Socratic Seminar packet due
