    Unit goal: Students read literary texts to understand that even in the most fantastical settings, literature can teach us real lessons about life. Students explore the opposition of good vs. evil, the value in courage, adventure, forgiveness, and honesty. They begin to consider how authors convince readers to believe the impossible and discuss the history and use of special effects in movies to begin to see how imagination and creativity can inspire story-telling. Students express their understanding of narrative point of view and the features of the fantasy genre by considering the stories from another perspective.

    Students' main homework assignments will be to complete any classwork that is not completed in class.  Occasionally I will assign a short homework assignment for them to complete, however it will never be more than a 30-45 minute assignment.  I will give the students time each afternoon to write down any homework that they may have.  If I assign a homework assignment other than unfinished classwork, I will add the assignment to this website when it is assigned.  I will check homework EVERY TIME I assign it.  

    CommonLit assignments are due each Friday by 11:00pm.  This week's article is an informational text, "Pet Rocks".  Due on Friday, Feb. 15th by 11:59pm.  If your child has not set up a CommonLit account on line yet, it is very important that they do.  This is a daily reading grade every week.
