SNOW DAY(S) UPDATES

With no other days remaining, finals are as scheduled.  Here’s the info. you need to know.

Also:  It is okay to stop by during finals to check out books to read over break 🙂 (unless you know you aren’t returning after break)…  #warriorsread

RHETORIC & COMP

Bring your NOTEBOOKS & whatever you are currently reading to the final.  We’ll take care of everything else then.

MULTI-CULTURAL LIT

Bring your NOTEBOOKS and whatever you are currently reading to the final.  IF you don’t need to attend the final (missed 4 days or less & have no discipline record), drop your NOTEBOOK off sometimes during finals (and any class library books that you aren’t reading over break).  ONLY drop off your notebook to Mrs. C (1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th hours for sure).

If you still need to work on your writing assignments (need computer access, you can come to the 1st period final to use chromebooks and finalize).

FINAL – We will be watching a video & quickwriting, reading a short text and annotating what you find, and answering reflective questions about your learning this semester.  If you aren’t required to take the final, but choose to, it won’t count if it lowers your grade.
