English 1201 – Upcoming Plans and Evaluations

Novel Study

We have just finished our study of the novel ‘Divergent’ by Veronica Roth. The students completed two small speaking activities, two submissions of written work and an analytical essay test finished the unit. For those who did not write the test or those who did not score as high as they would like, the retest is at lunchtime in my room on Monday the 5th of December. Students will know their scores by that time and can make that decision. The question, which was given to them, will remain the same, and they can bring a page of notes and their book to help them in their work.
