While I don't yet know the outcome of Superbowl 51 (LI in Roman numerals), it is my hope that the Falcons pull out the win! Whether or not they succeed, we will have school, and that means wrapping up our Peak novel study. BRING the book TO SCHOOL this week.

Day 1: You will prepare for the short answer test on Day 3. BRING THE BOOK with you to check annotations.

Day 2: I will explain the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarism. I will also provide more resources for the writing portion of your notebook - transition words and phrases, using third person point of view.

Day 3: Test over literary elements in Peak, focusing on conflict and plot structure.

Day 4: Work on the essay. I will explain the difference between parenthetical citations and a "works cited" page.

Your first draft (whatever you have completed to this point) is due Friday afternoon. TURN IT IN on Google Classroom. I will review and return it to you to continue working on next week.

HOMEWORK: Make sure you have noted conflict in the novel.
Continue to use Membean to grow your vocabulary.
There is no journal entry this week. Work on your essay instead.
Review the information you learned in the verbs unit. Try the irregular verbs wheel.
