The sophomores will be reading "Tuesdays With Morrie," the true story of a dying professor and his former student who meet every Tuesday in the last months of the older man's life. They rekindle their relationship and turn it into one final "class": lessons in how to live. It is full of wisdom, courage and aphorisms- so much to learn by sitting in on this final class.
Next, we will be revisiting writing skills needed for explanatory/informative writing. We will be writing texts that maintain a formal style of writing and includes relevant and sufficient facts and a concluding section.
All this will be in preparation for the AIR testing taking place this April.
