Mr. Macdonald’s English 3 Honors class, having been given a paper with no prompt for the first time, came up with excellent thesis statements about Raisin in the Sun completely on their own, noticing complex themes in the text that even he missed.

ESL Scholars

The ESL 2 students successfully completed a non-fiction unit this week by sharing book talks with their classmates. The readers selected their books in December and have been diligently reading about a number of fascinating topics from handwriting analysis or basketball to human trafficking or a behind the scenes look at the medical profession. They have journaled about their reading and shared new vocabulary on a Word Wall in the Writing Center. To cap off the project, the scholars submitted written book reviews and presented books talks to the class.
