Rough drafts are due no later than Monday. Students should use the handout on parenthetical documentation given to them by Mrs. Hendrix to assist them with their internal citations.

Have a safe weekend!

As we continue working on our research paper, students finalized the last steps of the rough draft that were due today. Mrs. Hendrix reviewed with them the process of internal documentation yesterday. This is the third year our students have gone through the research process, so many of the steps should be very familiar to them.

The Georgia Writing Assessment Test is January 17th, so we will continue to focus on writing until that point.

11/1 All language arts periods and ACLA2

We have been presenting Poe projects since yesterday. I CANNOT believe the level of originality exhibited in most of the projects this year! From movies, posters, and costume designs, to portrayals of attorneys at the narrator's trial. Epilogues have been very Poe-like and gruesome to the max! I am thrilled to, once again, have my students out do any expectations I may have had regarding the projects. They are here for everyone's "enjoyment"...feel free to come visit!

This week students began presenting their interviews/speeches. Visuals have ranged from dogs and guinea pigs to samples of homemade, edible delicacies! Students have shared their future goals, and so far we have professional shopper for the stars, interior designer, architect, doctor, teacher, impersonator, and even king of the world!

Those students still waiting to present need to be preparing and timing themselves at home. Make sure your presentations are at least 3 minutes long and creative!
