Greetings.  Welcome to Ms Wolfe's quia page.  You will find links to helpful and interesting websites.  

Happy New Year and welcome back to school.  We are currently in the last weeks of the Fall semester.  As we close out the semester, Period 2 is finishing their left brain/right brain journals and beginning to learn the Literature Circle process.  All classes will participate in Literature Circles in the Spring semester.

Currently, Periods 2, 3, and 4 are finishing reading My Brother Sam is Dead and getting ready for their final essay exam.  In the upcoming weeks, we will practice the five paragraph essay format that we will use for the essay test.  Students will have two or three opportunities to practice the format before we write the actual in-class exam on January 31st.

Period 5 is winding up their study of The Crucible.  We continue to read the play aloud in class.  At the end of every act, students are self-selecting quotations to represent each character and analysing these quotations to demonstrate their understanding of characterization.  This particular practice will help students for their final examination on The Crucible, set for the week of January 29th.

Please check back periodically for news and updates.  If you have suggestions, questions, or concerns, please feel free to e-mail a response to me.  I check the e-mails fairly regularly.  Additionally, you can always call at the above number and I will return calls as soon as possible.
