Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today we went over the next unit in vocabulary- Unit 5. We also started a discussion regarding the Holocaust due to the nature of our upcomming novel, Night by Elie Wiesel. I briefly went over propoganda and what "sparked" the issues that led to Hitler's influence. 

Tomorrow, the 8th graders will be given time to work on their Persuasive Essays for The Outsiders. Most students have passed the Brainstorming/Pre-writing portion of the writing process and are moving onto the drafting portion. This assignment has been posted in Google Classroom, but the date is still to be determined. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
