Hello Everyone!

I hope this finds everyone safe and healthy.  All this still seems surreal and still feels weird teaching from a distance.  Last week we started our Novel Studies and did our first literature circle discussion.  We will do the same this week…

Hello Everyone!

I hope this finds everyone safe and healthy.  All this still seems surreal and still feels weird teaching from a distance.  Last week you chose a novel and hopefully took a look at who else is in your group.  You will have to connect with these students to determine your reading schedule and roles.

*If you have not yet chosen a novel, you need to do so immediately.  Your first group discussion will be this week and participation is necessary.

*Tuesday Class Meet:  please join me on Tuesday May 12th at 9:30am for a class meeting.  At this point you can ask/clarify any questions you may have regarding literature circles which we will be starting on Thursday May 14th.

*Thursday Class Meet:  The following Book Literature Circles will take place on Thursday May 14th.  Please join your group (which is your novel choice) at the time below:
