After we visit the library, students are expected to read their Independent Reading (IR) books each night. Fifty pages will be due each Monday for a grade in the Independent Reading category for Literature.
A one page revision of a daily question is due throughout the quarter. Students should revise using the tricks and tips we discussed in class using mentor texts. This will be recorded as an Independent Writing grade in Language Arts.
