Social Studies:

Chapter 5 test will be written on Wednesday, January 18.  Some students took the review to work on over the weekend, and everyone else will get it on Monday.  We will be reviewing Monday and Tuesday.

Language Arts:

We have started working on a persuasive writing unit.  We started looking at ads and commercials, and students designed their own ads. We are now looking at persuasive articles and in particular examining their introductions, reasons supporting the author’s stance (and supporting details) and conclusions.  Next week we will look at techniques authors use to persuade, and then we will move on to writing persuasive pieces.

*Students were given a permission slip to have signed in order to participate in the Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs survey.  Please return to me as soon as possible!  Thanks!
