      Heroes and monsters and gods and battles and kings....OH MY!  The legend of Ulysses is brought to life in The Adventures of Ulysses novel by Bernard Evslin, which we will begin reading.  Each student received a calendar which chronicles our pages and chapters so you can help keep your child up to date.  The yellow calendar is located in the "current unit" section of the English binder.

Personal Project Homework

The students will be working on personal projects this year.  The first phase of this project will begin in early March when students will choose their topics.  Throughout the next few months we will focus on research.  In early spring we will start to write a research paper.  This entire process of researching and writing will be conducted in school.

The second phase of the personal project will be the presentation.  This presentation will be a celebration of the year long immersion in the topic chosen.  This phase will be done in class and at home and will be your opportunity to help your child.
