DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Sept. 14: Today everyone was given or created a file folder, in which to keep all of their writing assignments. Please ask the teacher for one, put your name on it, and keep it with the other file folders. Students also filled out the thesis graphic organizer document that can be found in Box 10, in the Make-up Work Center. Follow this guide to create a thesis that deals with Native American literature (please ask your teacher for the list, so you can see what your topic is). If you were absent during this important writing project, you should consider coming in during Friday school to get caught up.

Tuesday, Sept. 15: On the back of the thesis graphic organizer that we were given yesterday, you’ll find an outline template. Follow this guide to create a formal outline that deals with Native American literature (please ask your teacher for the list, so you can see what your topic is). If you were absent during this important writing project, you should consider coming in during Friday school to get caught up.

Wednesday, Sept. 16: Today we used our outlines to guide us as we created an essay that deals with Native American literature (please ask your teacher for the list, so you can see what your topic is).  If you were absent during this important writing project, you should consider coming in during Friday school to get caught up.

Thursday, Sept. 17: Today we used our outlines to guide us as we finished writing an essay that deals with Native American literature (please ask your teacher for the list, so you can see what your topic is).  If you were absent during this important writing project, you should consider coming in during Friday school to get caught up.
