As mentioned at Parent/Teacher conferences, Grade 9 is beginning an essay which will be worth a significant amount of their grade. We had a good start on it yesterday, and soon students should be contacting me to approve their thesis.
Here you can find the assignment: Commentary on The Kite Runner
And here you can find the outline: Essay Outline
Good luck and be sure to come to me once in awhile to make sure that you’re on the right track!
