Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today we worked on some vocabulary for the COOP test before we read more from The Outsiders. While reading we discussed turning points and the affect of alcohol and poor choices. We also discussed the concept of NOT judging a book by its cover. I showed the 8th graders a short clip from the show The Voice (a show where judges only judge based off of the contestant's voice not how they look) and both groups were SHOCKED when they saw the contestant. It was a nice way to tie in our lesson. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
