Mrs.Carole Scannell Junior High Reading/Language - 7th

My name is Mrs. Carole Scannell and I am the 7th grade ELA teacher.  I have been a parishioner for more than twenty years, and been involved in a few church activities.  I have taught at a few different schools in the area, but look forward to my new adventure here at St. John Fisher.  My five children are all graduates of St. John Fisher which brings me great pride.

In reading this week we are working on skills with irony and finding text evidence with regards to The Lottery.  In language we are working on subject/predicate parts of the sentence.  In writing, we just finished up our paper on the Giver, and now we are doing a compare/contrast on Daylight Savings Time.  Please remember that the second trimester ends on Friday, March 1st, and that AR points are due Wednesday, February 27th.

Week of February 19th

Posted on Feb 19, 2019

Welcome back after a long, restful weekend!  We have finished The Giver in reading and we are going to start a short story called The Lottery.  Like The Giver, this story has the reader asking a lot of questions...We will of course discuss the characters and the setting, along with why would this kind of thing be allowed in society???  In writing we are still working on our argumentative essay on how the ending of The Giver happens...Some of us think that Jonas survives and escapes to Elsewhere, and some of us think that Jonas froze to death  and is telling us from beyond.  Now to go back into the story and prove your argument!!!  In language we are working on plural nouns and the proper way to spell them.  Dont forget the trimester will end February 28th so AR points (25) need to be in by then....

Welcome to February as the weeks fly by!  In The Giver, we will read chapters 18-22 this week.  We are getting to the really exciting part of the story.  When we finish the book, we will work on an argumentative piece regarding the ending.  I will walk the students through the steps of how to put the paper together.  In writing, we are working on an essay about the greatest president.  These will be presented to Bill Lipinski for his Presidents Day All American Eagle Program.  In language, we will be working with commas this week.  Thanks for your patience with Catholic Schools Week and all of the interruptions!  We all survived:)
