English 3P: Weekly Update 10.6-10.10

WARNING:  This is a tentative calendar for the week.  I post this to provide my students with an opportunity to preview the week and to help them plan accordingly.  Sometimes things go exactly as planned and it is amazing. Sometimes they don’t because we might finish an objective faster than anticipated.  Sometimes, what I believed would take ten minutes at the beginning of class ends up taking an entire class.  Sometimes there are some mornings when I get ideas and decide to change EVERYTHING because something else seems better.  Anyways, you get the picture: TENTATIVE means maybe, if time allows, perhaps.  As my grandmother used to say, “we make plans and the universe laughs”.
