Language Arts Feb 27 – Mar 3

8th graders are continuing to read aloud their Bronx Masquerade book and discuss themes and conflicts of each of the characters and relate that to real life.  They will also continue to read Bad Boy and make comparisons between their two books (especially their themes)  Discussions of this book will be graded this week.

As an upcoming project for the end of Bronx Masquerade, students will host a conference to highlight a topic from the book.  Students will be divided into groups and will source all of the materials and research the information needed to put on a conference.

There will be a test this week on Parts of Speech and a layered vocabulary quiz on Wednesday and Friday.  Homework will be assignments not completed for in-class work.
