On Wednesday (12/6), I will be sending home an OPT OUT form for The Giver  movie. We will be watching the film in order to compare/contrast the book and the movie. 

Do not send the form back unless you DO NOT want your student to watch the film. We will be watching the film Monday-Wednesday the week before winter break.

All information for this assignment is located on Google Classroom. If your student needs additional assistance on this assignment, please have them visit me after school Monday or Tuesday.

We are having a vocab quiz next week on either Tuesday or Thursday. Homework has been assigned; it asks that students rewrite the word, identify the part of speech, and write a sentence with context for the eight words. 

Updated Sun, Oct 22nd

Last week, we worked on an essay for The Giver the entire week. Some students made more progress than others, but I extended the deadline until Tuesday to give everyone a chance to finish up their papers. There is a visual component as well.

All the documentation is located in a Google Slide document that is shared with the students on Google Classroom. They should have a planning handout that they recorded information on, so they should have access to evidence from the text. If they need to get quotes, they may do so Monday in class.

On Wednesday, we are having a vocab quiz on the words that I decided to cover for chapters 1-6 of The Giver. I sent home some homework that isn't super intensive (mostly because there are 18 words, and we already went over them). 

The students simply need to rewrite the word, part of speech, and definition for the words. They have all the material in their notebooks unless they were absent, in which case they just need find the information in a dictionary. In addition, they need to choose the six words that might give them trouble and write a sentence with context for the word. An example is written on the paper.
