How to stay sharp

The freshmen will begin To Kill a Mockingbird when we come back from break.  If you’re challenged by bigger books, I can check a copy out to you before we head home for good this Thursday.  There will be six quizzes during the unit so reading is a MUST.

I also suggest that each student starts an online blog.  Public or private it’s a great way to improve writing skills.  I’ve had a half-dozen blogs in my life and they’ve helped me become a much better writer over the years.  You acn use a site like this (wordpress.com) or others such as livejournal.com or blogspot.com.  Sign up today!  Each blog gives you a privacy option.
