Literature & Composition

Students begin this week by sharing their narrative stories with one another.  This is a great opportunity for the students to listen and complement their peers, practice presenting to a small group, and enjoy the creative ideas expressed through narrative writing.

Students will continue the week with grammar and diagramming review of adverb clauses and move into adjective clauses.  This includes a review of  the relative pronoun and what to do with WHO, WHOSE, and WHOM, words that often give us trouble in both speaking and writing.

Edgar Allan Poe, A Collection of Stories will begin Monday, January 25.  Once again, please ensure that your student has the correct text with him/her in class on that day.  The ISBN number is 978-0-8125-0455-2
