The final deadline for late work has passed (December 15th-as listed on my whiteboard) and finals are approaching. Here's what to expect:
As I spend the next few days grading late work, students will be studying (mostly independently) in class on Monday and Tuesday. I have added copies of the study guide to Quarter 2 pages on weebly.
Finals will take place during Wednesday and Thursday, according to normal block day schedules. The only difference will be slightly shorter classes leading to a half-day release time.
Students in my class can expect to spend an hour taking their final and may bring a book to silently read if they finish early.
Final grades will be submitted by Friday. After this time, I will not be able to alter them.
Christmas Break: I am not assigning homework over Christmas break. However, Honors students will need to acquire a copy of William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet to bring upon returning from break in January.
Students who wish to get ahead may read Tales from Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, or for Traditional classes, may also read King Lear and The Tempest, which we will study when we return as well.
Semester 2: Students are invited to replenish our tissue supplies as we bear our way through a vibrant cold & flu season. To brighten the room, students are also welcome to bring in holiday decorations or window stickies that may easily be put up in the classroom. We might also make use of 1 more bottle of hand sanitizer and of course, always welcome donations of blue/black/red pens.
Thank you for a wonderful year so far, Chargers. Let's finish this semester strong!
