The 3rd quarter in Humanities is well under way. We completed our exciting unit on the Middle Ages with all students writing ballads. We’ve transitioned to the Renaissance now and will continue for the next couple of weeks. We are focusing heavily on writing using the 6 + 1 Traits of Writing. This will continue as we prepare for the ERB assessments coming in early April. You can visit the following website for details on the 6 + 1 Traits: http://www.nwrel.org/assessment/department.php?d=1
We’ve completed our second novel of the year, Dragonkeeper by Carole Wilkinson. Students will conclude their work with the novel this week and we’ll all enjoy an exciting visit by the author on March 5th, 6th and 7th! We’ll begin our 3rd novel of the year in the next couple of weeks by reading The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. As spring nears we encourage all students to stay focused and get their work turned in on time to the best of their ability.
