Students worked very hard on their essays this week. They gave lots of peer feedback and did some editing. We will not be using anymore class time to work on these. Any final typing and correcting they need to do should be done this weekend. If your student does not have access to a computer and needs to work on their essay, please just shoot me a quick email. I can tell they learned a lot from their earthquake essays in our first expedition! I can't wait to read the finished products!
Our Lyddie essay marks the end of our first case study of this expedition. On Monday, we will begin case study 2, which focuses more on working conditions. Students will also need to finish up their question packet for Lyddie this weekend if it is not already done.
The following information was sent out in an email regarding picture day on Tuesday of next week:

Our crew put on a great Megacrew this week. Thanks to all who were able to come watch! They explained our expedition to the rest of the school and shared poetry that they have written since our kick-off in January. They also explained the novel "Lyddie" and a group of students also preformed a scene out of the book. Everyone all did an excellent job!
Lastly, I apologize again for not being available Friday after school for those students who had planned on staying to get help and work on missing work. I am typically always available on Monday, Thursdays, and Fridays (weather pending). Please let me know or have your student let me know if they would like to stay after school any of those days. I will communicate any changes I have to make to that schedule due to weather or other commitments. Thanks!
As always if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about our class or your student, please do not hesitate to contact me!
