Language Arts: This week, students will focus on revising and editing their narrative rough drafts. They will have a checklist to follow, and will need to edit on their own and with a partner. It is okay to have a parent help with revising and editing at home. This assignment is revised in Canvas under the Narrative Rough Draft assignment.

Social Studies: Students will choose an article about what is happening in the world for their Current Event #2. They will need to type a paragraph summary and paragraph opinion into the Canvas assignment. I am asking students to try to avoid articles about sports and entertainment.

DUE DATES:

  • Wednesday, November 3: ALL late work and regrades DUE by 11:59 p.m.
  • Thursday, November 4: Current Event #2 DUE (for Quarter 2 grade)
  • Monday, November 8: Narrative Revising & Editing DUE
