Week of Feb. 2, 2009 9th Grade English

Wow! We've only got 3 more weeks of intersession! It's time to buckle down and focus on passing this class.

This week we're focusing on study skills for tests; how our brain works when we are anxious during tests, and what we can do to relax and improve test scores.

We're also continuing to analyze "Animal Farm" by Orson Wells, and we're learning how to write essays made up of five paragraphs.

Let's keep reading our books checked out from the L.A. High Library - try for one hour per night. Bring your books to class so you can read it if you finish an assignment early.

Last, we'll be filling out Los Angeles Public Library card applications which your parents need to sign, in preparation for a field trip to the Memorial Library across the street.
