Dear Students and Parents,
I have adjusted the weighted points regarding Reading Plus assignments for the following assignments from 1/13 and 1/20.
1/13 & 1/20 Reading Plus Best Lesson= 5 points
1/13 & 1/20 Reading Plus Weekly Average= 10 points
The Reading Plus grades from last week 1/23/2017- 1/29/2017 were not exemplary overall, so I will only be recording passing scores from students who completed four reading assignments and four vocabulary assignments with 70% or above.
Study Hall will be offered after school Tues and Thursday of this week from 3:35-4:35. Study Hall is also available every morning during homeroom.
From this day forward, weighted points regarding Reading plus will be the original 15 points for the weekly average and 10 points for vocabulary lessons.
Any additional zeros will be addressed during student conferences this week.
Please ensure students have checked their Power School grades on a weekly basis.

Video Comprehension Questions
Students created double-bubble thinking maps in teams and shared the information orally with the class. We paused and clarified any misconceptions during their presentations of research.
Warning: When allowing students to collaborate on the Prezi, if their cursors collide while creating it can jumble together information and designs creating a complete unreadable mess.
Slides were edited because of the volume of maps created. If you would like to zoom in and read the information on a specific double bubble map, hover the cursor over the right side of the screen and click the Plus magnification icon. (It appears when you hover over the right portion of the screen.
What current event were you comparing to MLK Jr.'s dream?
