The Sister Cities International organization is sponsoring a student writing contest. You can submit an essay or poem (perhaps a found poem?) on the following prompt: Through either an essay or a poem, illustrate how global connectivity allows an individual or community to thrive locally. How has this connectivity impacted you for the better?
I hope your first day at Culver City High School went smoothly. I enjoyed meeting all of you.
ENGLISH 9 Honors: A few students asked if you would need the large orange literature book this week. The answer is: not this week. We will start using it next week, though. Leave it in your locker until further notice. This week we will be working with the two texts that you read over the summer, The Immortal LIfe of Henrietta Lacks and The House of the Scorpion. Today I collected the summer assignment from 3rd & 4th. I ran out of time with 1st period, so I will collect it tomorrow.
