End of Year Survey

Hey there, chickadees!

Below is the link to the end-of-year survey that I'd like you to fill out about your time in this class.  The survey will help me to improve my classes for next year and to better understand your learning over the past nine months.  Please fill it out thoughtfully and honestly.  You do not have to give your name.

Thank you!

E-Mail Etiquette - Information and Homework

Hey there, beautiful young people!

Just wanted to share the slides that I used in class today to teach a lesson on e-mail etiquette.  Please don't forget to do your homework, due the day after your long language arts period (so due tomorrow for Period A and Thursday for Periods B and D).

The homework: Write me a grammatically correct, proper e-mail of 5-8 sentences.  This e-mail should follow all of the rules that we discussed during our lesson in class.  The e-mail should be about the book you're reading for your final exam.  You can tell me a little about the plot, or tell me about the author's writing style, or tell me what's happening where you are in the book right now.  Failure to send this e-mail will result in a zero.

Here are the slides, in case you need to review.

Have a great day!  Thanks for being awesome!
