Weekly Newsletter (March 25-28)


Posted by MrLynch | Posted in Weekly Newsletter | Posted on March 24, 2013

We have a four-dayer this week. Students have a half day of school on Thursday and then no school on Friday. Students were introduced to the American Revolution Famous Person Speeches a couple weeks ago. This week were are going to focus on the actual writing of the speech and how students take information from their research and make that into an interesting speech. Each student was assigned a famous person from the American Revolution era. If they did not like the person they were assigned they were able to change it (with my approval). The deadline for changing the assigned person has passed. The assignment is to write and give a 3-5 minute speech in the “first person.” That means students should actually pretend they are the famous person and dress up as that person, too. The speeches will be on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12.
