Hi all!   As we move towards the end of the quarter please continue making an effort to stay focused on your work.  As an additional push I am offering an extra credit option that you may complete to push your grade from the A to the B or the C to a B, which ever floats your boat! YOU MUST COMPLETE THIS BY FRIDAY OCTOBER 10! 

I am so proud of those of you who are trying your best to read better, write better, be curious and successful! Stay focused and on track towards a better YOU! Here is your extra credit question.  Complete this for 10 points (or replacing a missing assignment):

In the comments below please reflect on your own progress in this class and answer 3 of the following questions:

1) Which skills are you doing really well? Which skills confuse you?

2) What classroom activity do you really enjoy? Why?

3) What classroom activity is confusing to you? Why?

4) What can you do to improve your grade?

Complete ALL 4 and get an additional surprise in class tomorrow!

About jvpilar

Here's a little info about your teacher. I worked really hard to become your teacher. I went to UIC to get a degree in English, but decided to work as a writer in California. While I was there I realized I would rather work with kids than work in an office all day, so I decided to come back to Chicago and become a licensed, fully certified teacher. I earned a Masters Degree in Teaching and Education from Dominican University and got my first job at Hancock. During my 4 years at Hancock, I have taught English at every grade level. I started the Culinary Club and also sponsor BuildOn, both clubs do community service projects all over the city. I also have a cat named Duke that I rescued during one of our BuildOn service learning projects and a dog named Duchess.
