I was not at school today due to a family funeral in Ashland.

Tomorrow we will be finishing up the short story “The Hitchhiker.” We started this activity on Friday in 1st hour, 2nd hour and 7th hour. 5th hour will begin the play tomorrow. It was originally a play that was listened to in the 1940’s via the radio. We are actually listening to the original recording of the play and following along to the script. The students are looking at the elements of suspense and foreshadowing and flashback.

I have a handful of students compacting with me. They will continue to work on their individual project. Their deadline for project completion is Friday, December 14. They will be exempt from all activities. Their grade will consist of rough drafts, revisions, and final presentation. They are exempt from tests, quizzes, etc.
