Tuesday, Jan. 6: Today some students went to the computer lab to finish typing their Native American literature essays. If you were absent today, and you still need to do more typing, another chance will be given on Thursday. Today we also read “Letter to John Adams” on page 157 of our literature book. If you still need to read this, please bring a literature book with you to the library on Thursday to read that brief letter.

Wednesday, Jan. 7: Today we learned how our teacher scores our writing by scoring our own letters. If you were gone for this, you may have a more difficult time understanding our grading rubric, but it will help to read through the definitions for the six traits of writing, which are found in the English Handbook Pages.

Thursday, Jan. 8: Today our English teacher collected our Native American literature essays for a grade. Please turn yours in right away. You must turn in each of the following:
