Today we continued the benchmark. It’s very important that all students have enough time to finish the test since this score will help us determine who needs extra after-school practice, who is in danger of failing ninth grade, and who is ready for the EOC. For students who are ready, this will help us zero in on what skills each student needs to work on. We will continue testing tomorrow. Those who are finished will be starting the poetry unit with some independent work.
HW: Optional – if you would like to buy a copy of any Honors / Honors Project texts through me (that is, through The Regulator — I’ll order them and deliver them to you if you give me the money), submit your green order form and payment (check to DSA or cash) either tomorrow or Thursday.
