March Update

6 Apr

English 8:  The 8s have begun a new novel — Clive Barker’s The Thief of Always. This is a great book for 8s — just enough spookiness and mystery to keep everyone reading. The vocabulary and writing are good for 8s, too — lots of similes and metaphors in the descriptions.

My 12s are about half-way through Paper Towns and wondering who Margo Roth Spiegelman really is.

English 10s are finishing up The Giver by watching the movie and writing a persuasive essay. The movie is an excellent adaptation of the novel, and one that author Lois Lowry speaks highly of, which is always a good sign. Up next:  Romeo and Juliet!
