Small Group ELA – homework!

Please remember that your completed graphic organizer is due tomorrow.  You will need this to begin the essay in class.

Remember that you have the following resources available to help:

  • The notes you took on the movie, Temple Grandin
  • The online textbook – information about Temple Grandin begins on pg. 153

We completed the outline of the graphic organizer together in class – all you should have to do tonight is add the details/commentary.
