English 8 Magnet
Instructor: Mrs. Campbell   
Autobiographies:  Due November 9
Class emphasis for the past few weeks has been focused on getting your autobiographies ready for the required Magnet School Digital Portfolio.  The descriptive (grandparent) essays and narrative (life story) essays have let your writing skills shine!  Our focus in the coming weeks will be on literature and traditional grammar/writing assignments.  This week we will begin reading The Diary of Anne Frank.  We will read some of it together in class; however, due to time constraints, much of the play must be read outside of class.  On Monday, November 16, you will be tested on Act I.  Also, Language books will be issued Monday, November 9.  Assignments will be made at that time.
