Monday, January 23rd

Today in class, we read another great mentor text, The Gift of the Magi. We spent some time talking about the characters and theme of the short story and found evidence to support each of our claims.

Remember, tomorrow’s quiz will not be asking you to define the traits. You will be encouraged to apply your understanding of the meanings in various ways. These were posted to an ELA Schoology update last week. This will be the last grade of your Quarter 2 grade (unless you are in Fishbowl Group #4).


  • 12-minute study (or more) for Level 6 Character Traits quiz (quiz tomorrow)
  • Fishbowl Group #4: Written explanation and wiki review (Don’t forget changed section!)
