- WOW: Abstract
This quarter we will begin reading Watsons Go To Birmingham, 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis. This is a wonderful novel that delves into the prejudices and racism of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, as told through the eyes of a ten year old boy. Our major writing project this quarter will be a Poetry Portfolio.
This quarter we will finish reading The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. We will also be working on our Poetry Portfolio.
This will be an exciting and busy quarter for us. We will continue to WRITE, WRITE, WRITE! We will begin our Holocaust Unit, beginning with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. We will also work on our Poetry Portfolio, but with a twist. As always, we need to keep an eye on fine tuning our essay writing skills as well.
