10th grade: Week of 4/4-4/8

This week we will be preparing for the 10th grade state reading test. There is no homework associated with the test prep, but if you are absent, you need to come in before or after school to make up the practice tests we take during class.

At home, you need to be working on your heritage project. We will have a check-in on Wednesday to see where you’re at, and you will earn points based on your progress. Have you made your family tree? Started to research a country from which your ancestors came? Chosen an elderly relative to interview and developed questions? This is where you should be at on Wednesday.

Friday: Vocab Log 3-4 due (pale yellow color) and Independent Reading
