Hello, students! I miss each one of you!!

I will begin taking grades this week, and these are your assignments to be completed by

FRIDAY, APRIL 10. 


Assignment #1: You will read at least 20 minutes each day. Take a few notes about your book each day. ****Look at the links below if you need a book.****

On Friday (before 4:00 PM) you will write a ONE PAGE summary about what you read in your book and a response to what you have read. You may take a photo of your paper and email it to me or send it via Remind. It is important for you to read a little EVERY DAY so writing one page will not be difficult.

 

Assignment #2: Score 80% or above on at least FOUR ReadTheory quizzes before FRIDAY at 4:00 PM. I will be recording grades at 4:00 PM on Friday. This is four for the week, not each day.
