Thomas Literature for Monday, May 18th, 2020

Good morning 8th graders,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend and are ready for Spirit Week 2: The Spiriting Continues! Today is Monday Mask-a-thon, so check out the school website for more details. Remember to share your spirit (and pictures) with Mrs. Skokan!

Okay, now for your Literature work – you have two tasks to complete today:

  • What Teachers Make – Text vs. Performance Assignment (20 minutes)
  • Daily reading (20 – 35 minutes)

And away we go!

  1. What Teachers Make – Text vs. Performance Assignment (20 minutes)
    • Go to the assignment on Teams
    • Read the text of “What Teachers Make” by Taylor Mali
    • Listen to Taylor Mali’s performance of the same poem
    • Answer the questions in the assignment
    • Submit your responses on Teams by the end of the day today (the posted due date is for the Mansfield homeroom).
  2. Daily reading (20 – 35 minutes)
    • Read for 15 to 30 minutes
    • Complete your entry in your reading log and put extra thought and effort into the Evidence column
    • Contact me with any questions

Have a great day and remember to reach out if you need help. I look forward to seeing your spiritedness (if that’s a word) online!
