Welcome back to Monday, everyone! I hope you guys had an awesome weekend and are now prepared for a little studying, because your poetry unit test is tomorrow!!
Today in class we’ll review our figurative language concepts with this snazzy PowerPoint, and then I’ve got a worksheet for you to do! This is actually the unit test that I gave last semester, so obviously you guys will take a different one tomorrow.
Your unit test tomorrow will consist of 30 multiple choice questions worth 2 points each, and a writing section worth 40 points. Yes, this means that if you blow off the writing section, you will not pass the test.
Also, your poetry journals are due today. If you have any left to finish, now is a good time to do it, and once they’re done you should staple them together with a rubric on top so I can grade them all nice and easy. Let me know if you have any questions about how to finish your journals or do the figurative language worksheet, or about how you’ll be graded.
