Hope y’all had a great long weekend!

7th Grade:

This week we will be analyzing expository writing by identifying various text features and determining their purpose within text. There will not be any homework this week. ENJOY!

8th Grade:

This week we will be starting our study of argumentative writing by participating in a “Slip or Trip” activity. You will act as the investigator in a crime and will need to form a theory about the events that occurred. You will present your theory in an argumentative writing piece which will hopefully convince your peers. If you keep up with classwork this week, there will not be any homework!
