On Wednesday (10/16), students will complete a chapter 1 practice test in class. We will go over this together. Students should use the practice test and all of their handouts to study when preparing for the test. The chapter 1 test will be on Thursday (10/17).
We will continue our unit on memoir writing. This week students will use narrative techniques such as dialogue to demonstrate why events are significant. They will also use a variety of transition words and phrases, signaling shifts from one time frame or setting to another.
