This website has been created for the 8th grade students of Scribner Middle School to access their English 8 content online.

Nov. 10-14

1. Storyboard work day (there are colored pencils in the glass cabinet)

HOMEWORK: Storyboards are due FRIDAY. Students will not have enough time in class to finish, so they should be working on these at home.

STORYBOARD MATERIAL

 

Tuesday:

All classes:

1. Read “The Lottery” — since the story is 8 pages long, it will take a while to copy... you may want to get the copies made on Monday during plan time so that you don't run into copy machine wars Tuesday morning. :-)

2. If you finish early, you can begin the constructed response questions.
