    This week in English students will continue to read and journal; your graded assignment will be revising the final draft of your persuasive letter.

    Continue to journal 2- 5 times this week. The length is up to you; it can be a three-sentence paragraph or a full page. You should add to your slides, but you do not need to turn this in yet.

    Read for 20 min each day. I recommend keeping track of noteworthy things on a homemade bookmark. Please share book recommendations in the “Book Talk” assignment on google classroom.  Additionally, you may want to check out some of the non-fiction articles I have provided in google classroom.

    Review grammar lesson provided in google classroom, students may also sign into Khan Academy 9using HISD email) for additional grammar lessons and practice.

    *Revise and edit your persuasive letter. Use the notes and checklist provided in google classroom to revise your persuasive letter.  Students should highlight at least three charges they have made in the final draft. (Grade)

    Look for announcements of optional Teams meetings posted in google classroom, times have not yet be determined.
