Topic Sentence and New Chapter

English I Honors students worked on the topic sentence for their most challenging assignment so far: the paragraph on symbolism. Students worked in pairs to flesh out and improve their topic sentences and do some preliminary writing on the topic.

English 8 students embarked on a mini-project of sorts, working to complete Nightjohn chapter four and all the accompanied work with relatively little guidance from the teacher — a scaffolded approach to group work.


  • English 8 Studies: none.
  • English I Honors: prepare your two quotes for your CDs in the paragraph.
