Tomorrow is picture day! We will come into class and get organized before we go down to the auditorium for pictures. So I expect to review lit. terms with you if we get to come back to the classroom.
"But, Miss White, why do we have to review lit terms???" you ask.
That is SUCH a good question. It's because we are going to have a QUIZ MONDAY. Please STUDY the following:

Your next quiz is soon to follow, so don't slack off.
Have a great weekend. NewsChannel9 says that there will be lots of sunshine on Saturday and Sunday, so enjoy!
Today you got back your quiz grades for yesterday's quiz on Poetry Terms and Writing Philosophies (isms). When I was grading them, I realized that some of you need to learn to STUDY the material before a quiz. Suggestions for a good (but short) study session:
**Go to a place where people are not going to bother you.
**Turn off the sounds around you the best you can. (Maybe this involves closing a door or turning off the iPod.)
**Copy the information onto note cards can help because the info is going into your brain while you're writing.
**Find little memory helps that make sense to you when you try to recall the information.
**Ask someone to quiz you on the information.
**If there is a particular teacher who seems to explain concepts to you better, ask that teacher for study suggestions.
We also took more notes today. Check out the SHORT STORY page (above) for a copy of the PowerPoint from class.
Have a good night. I'll see you tomorrow!
