In Class

Students are working on the Hero's Journey. We watched a short video about the Hero's Journey and the stages a hero goes through to reach their goal. We will be going further with the Hero's Journey in the coming weeks and will also take a look at what makes an Epic. 

       ***Try watching movies about heroes and see if you can identify the Hero's Journey!***

We are finishing our "What Makes A Good Friend?" Expository Essay and will be moving into Persuasive Writing. With the Persuasive essay, students will be making placing a claim and arguing their stance on a topic. We will also be looking at a process and explaining how to do something. 

One of the bigger assignments will be due at the end of March. Since we have finished Sharon Creech's Walk Two Moons, students will be doing an at home End of Book Project
