Quizzing and Summarizing

Run-on Sentence Quiz  Happy Friday! Let's start the day by demonstrating what we've learned about run-on sentences and how to repair them. You may find your quiz here. If you finish early, you may read and/or take A.R. quizzes.  

Summary Paragraph: "Tuesday of the Other June"  Today is your last day to get help from me on your summary paragraph. Just a reminder: Your paragraph must include a topic sentence that identifies the title, author and the topic of the story. The content of the paragraph must incorporate the main events from the beginning, middle and end of the story. Your paragraph should be written in your own words and not include personal opinions. Finally, your paragraph should be well-organized and include appropriate transitions. The summary paragraph assignment is due Tuesday, September 23. If you finish early, you may read and/or take A.R. quizzes.
