Language Arts 11/16-17

Today we started work on literary essays.  Students flash drafted a practice essay on the Three Little Pigs, just to get a sense for essay structure and making a claim about a character.  If you missed class today, make sure to get the Boxes and Bullets outline from me next time.

Then, each student picked a short story to read for homework.  The choices were “The Gift of the Magi” by O’Henry. “Freak the Geek” by John Green, “Thank you Maam” by Langston Hughes, or “The Stray” by Cynthia Rylant.  If you can’t find a copy of one of these online, see me.

Read your selected short story for Wednesday/ Thursday
