Ms Turner - English/Language Arts

Miss Turner’s Distance Learning Assignments April 27- May 1


Zoom Conferences this week will be later in the week (NOT on Tuesday).  Friday instead is the goal to give students enough time to read all 7 Newsela Articles and answer the quizzes.  It would be helpful for students to read the articles before holding the conferences so we can have a class discussion about Homelessness in America and possible solutions for the problem.  We will also review the steps and instructions for writing an Expository Essay.
