Welcome to week two back after break. One more week left before Semester 1 is over and done with. That means, anything you need to make up or redo you need to be done with by next Friday. One week! After that, you have 2-3 weeks (I can't remember exactly, but I will verify) to turn in late work from Semester 1. And then you're done. And we are moving fast into Semester 2 already.
This week we have been breaking into the phrase "Seeing is Believing" and trying to apply it to the works we have been reading and listening to so far this collection. We have been doing a lot of writing, and getting our book reviews finished up as well. This has been a busy week! Good job at keeping up.
We will be keeping it pretty busy for the next few weeks as well, as we move forward in what will be known as our "opinion" essay. I say "opinion" in quotes for one reason. You're opinions need to be heard, but they do not matter unless you can back them up with proof, with evidence. We need to see what you mean in order to believe it ourselves. This is where our opinions become something more, something worth arguing for, something we can prove, something to believe.
Are you ready?
This is where you can check and see a brief overview of what we have done as a class each week. My intention is to keep this up to date with happenings, assignments, trends, previews of the following week, and anything else that needs to be shared with my students and their families. I may not always get something written each week, but I will do my best to be disciplined in keeping you informed.
