DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, April 27 through Thursday, April 30: This will be our last week to silently read The Red Badge of Courage in class. Next week will be a week of review games and activities, so although you can finish reading The Red Badge of Courage on your own at home, if you’re planning to just use class time to finish, you really should finish this week. Our final exam, which encompasses The Red Badge of Courage, “Aboard a Slave Ship, 1829,” “The Devil and Tom Walker,” “The Trail of Tears,” Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, “The Declaration of Independence,” and all of the other literature we’ve read, will begin on Monday, May 11th. Your teacher will be collecting The Red Badge of Courage on Thursday, May 7th.
