Week of August 14th!

This week student’s will be reading   The Scholarship Jacket by Marta Salinas and analyzing how authors use narrative elements to create a story! A personal narrative tells a story about something that happened in the writer’s life. If you’d like to read the story along  with your student you can find it by clicking here.
