Thank You for a Wonderful Year

Thank you everyone for a memorable year!

I hope that you will all keep reading and writing this summer. Think about fun ways to use words, read fun books (you don't even have to take a test on the reading), write poetry, rap songs, stories, even essays if you are so inclined to.
You can always send your writings to me and I will be happy to read them.

I look forward to seeing all of you in September!


Mrs. T.

The End of the Semester

This semester is coming to an end. You have worked hard--or at least attempted to work hard. Now you only have a few days to make sure that everything that you have done and learned this semester, will show in your grades.

Here is your task:

  1. Write what you have learned this semester. Be specific! (Nobody wants to read that you have learned "stuff.") Use academic English, not slang.
  2. What is your next goal in learning English and becoming proficient in all the four domains: listening, reading, writing and speaking?
  3. If you could choose two (2) questions for the final exam, what would they be? (they can be for either class)
       a. you can write two actual questions
       b. you can indicate which two types of questions and about which topics you
          would like to have questions in the final exam

Each of these three questions is worth five (5) points. Therefore, you can earn up to 15 points for this assignment for your 4th hour class. Your deadline is June 5, 2013 11:59 p.m.
