I work with the Ninth Grade American English
students with vocabulary skills on Mondays and Fridays. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Mary Flegler teaches a unit on writing and critical analysis of Sandra Cisneros’s novel, The House on Mango Street. The seventeen Greek & Latin Roots students will finish our last few units this month. With three chapter tests completed this semester, their class average is 86%! Congratulations, one and all! Depth Psychology students are finishing the story of Psyche and Eros and will complete papers reflecting on the masculine and feminine in fairytales. Mary’s 5th period writing class is polishing their research papers, resumes, business letters and movie reviews. I joyfully hosted Kate Schramm’sThursday afternoon Creation classes for Multi-Cultural Day on Okinawa culture. Thanks, Kate!
