Each week students will be asked to read daily. They can choose any reading material they would like. If they have books at home, that’s great, if not, here are some short stories they can choose from: https://www.weareteachers.com/best-short-stories-for-middle-schoolers/. They are also welcome to find their own reading material online.

Students will also be asked to journal daily. They may choose whatever topic they want to write about. They only need to write a minimum of four sentences; however, they should practice proper mechanics and grammar.

For the week of April 6th-9th students need to complete the following assignment as a review on characterization. Seventh graders can choose to focus on a character from The Outsiders, Eighth grade students can choose a character from The Hunger Games, and my English III students can choose a character from The Crucible or a character from any novel they’ve enjoyed in the past. Further instruction is listed on the document itself.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JX7N8tMzJDOL2rZtMYvYzlfxRhTzcCG2tCuw0bWCEN8/edit?usp=sharing  Students will also have an assignment on USA Test Prep.
