This week students will begin the process of writing the introductory paragraph of their cause and effect essay. Students should have identified the three topics they will cover within this five paragraph essay. They have received articles from which to draw information from which they need to bring to class every day. We will also begin writing our body paragraphs.
In grammar, there will be a mini quiz on Tuesday over action verbs and objects (4.2); after which we will cover linking verbs and predicate words (4.3). There will be a mini quiz on Thursday over linking verbs and predicate words (4.3), followed by notes and practice over principal parts of verbs (4.4). *Students should be listening to class instruction and using their notes and/or book to study for quizzes and complete handouts.*
