Going UP on a TUESDAY… :)

Hi all! This is the last big PUSH to get those grades up. THE LAST DAY TO TURN IN MISSING WORK IS WED!!! Today’s extra credit assignment will take the place of a missing assignment or add 10 points to your lowest score. Take advantage of this last PUSH!

Answer the following question in the comments:

1) What pushes or motivates me to do my best?

2) How can I use that motivation to succeed academically?

Homework ENG I:

– Don’t forget Independent Reading Book Reports are due this week November 5-6!

– Be prepared to show me your progress on the Multigenre Project. We will continue working on them in class.

Homework ENG II:

Read Ch.8 Scarlet Letter

-Complete your Reading Guide for CH.8


– If you didn’t complete your FINAL 10 week assessment please see me after school or during your lunch period to finish it!!!

-If you have missing assignments see me during lunch or after school to finish your work!!!

-CHECK YOUR GRADES AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE!!! You can always raise your grade by going to lunch tutoring or Scholar Hour. See me for more details and a pass. Then, I will send you down during lunch or after school.

-Build On Meeting Tuesday!

-Culinary Club, turn in your permission slips and money if you want to cook.

Ok and just because I promised Karyme in 3rd period- here’s the video! LOL


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.

    What motivates me is to do better is my parents they push me because they want me to do better than what they did and want me to be successful. I will get my education with the push my parents give and get a job I enjoy.

  2. What pushes me to do my best is my freedom from my mom and the way she thinks of me. If I get bad grades she most likely wouldn’t let me go out and would think that I don’t care about my grades or future.

    I could use this motivation to help me succeed because it’ll help me to keep on trying my best and if I keep trying my best I’ll be doing good so I’ll do good on tests and homework to get good grades.
