Warm Up: Silent Reading  Happy Monday! You may use this time to read silently from your A.R. book and/or take A.R. quizzes. I will also try to conference with you regarding your reading progress.  

Guided Reading and Analyzing Elements of Fiction: "Tuesday of the Other June" Today we are going to read yet another selection of literature about a young person who is struggling with growing up and personal identity.
