This is our LAST week of school until Thanksgiving break!! This last week will be VERY busy, so please make every effort to be here every day!  This week we will focus on comparing and contrasting "Cask of Amontillado" and "The Tell Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe. We will focus on comparing and contrasting point of view in the passage, as well as the tone and the voice, and also the setting. We will also focus on understanding unreliable narrator. We also have Math Case 21 testing on Monday, and ELA testing on Tuesday and Wednesday. This week we will continue our 2nd Literature Circle groups. We will also look at point of view and unreliable narrator in both texts. I think the students are really going to like both choices! Lastly, progress reports went home last Thursday, plese send them back signed ASAP! As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns!
