ENGLISH 7 HONORS
Last week read ¨Through the Tunnel¨ by Doris Lessing, learned about symbolism, and found examples of symbolism in the story. Let me just say, one of the things I love about teaching is listening to what my students have to say in class. Some of their interpretations and analysis were amazing! Once they found quotes to use in their essays, I taught them how to blend their quotes into their writing. We then learned how to analyze the quotes. I included the meme below and would love you to ask your child what it means! They should know. :) Many students finished their essays in class and were able to ask me for help as needed. It was a very productive week! I am so grateful for their willingness to learn and work hard.
Here is an example of what one of my students turned in:
ENGLISH 7 COLLEGE PREP
Last week we read a story called "Charles." It had a great plot twist at the end! We looked for examples of foreshadowing in the story and then completed an expanding summary activity.
This led to writing a longer summary of the story. . Students learned about TAG and practiced using transitions in their summaries. They then turned in their final drafts to turnitin.com. It was a productive week!
