A couple of important announcements relating to current assignments...
1. The third SRC of the marking period is due THIS FRIDAY, 3/6/15. Please be sure to turn it in on or before that date to be eligible for full credit. Remember, early submissions receive extra points!
2. Your competitive sports argumentative essays are due THIS FRIDAY, 3/6/15. They should be typed and will be graded using the argumentative writing checklist here, which students have had ample time to review and utilize. If you can truly answer YES to all of the questions on the checklist, there's no reason you shouldn't get an excellent score on your essay. At this point, students should have five paragraphs composed, and they should be ready to type them up in the library on Wednesday of this week.
3. We'll be beginning to type your Civil Rights Movement essays this week, but a due date for them is still to be determined. I expect that they will be due AFTER the PARCC testing is complete, but stay tuned for further updates.
4. For anyone who is behind on their chapter reflections for our class read, they can be found below through Chapter Nine. Please submit them ASAP if you have not already.
Have a wonderful Monday, and see you all tomorrow!
