However, don’t stress; there will not be a quiz this Friday! Text me at 397-3234 if you don’t understand the assignment or you have problems with the assignment. Looking forward to studying Latin together with you all! There is no need to bring your Lingua Latina Textbook to class at this time. Just bring your Visual Latin binder. See you Friday!

    Shurley English 6 for May 1st

    Welcome to May!!! This week your assignment is Classical Composition, Fable Stage – Lesson #9 “The Thirsty Pigeon.”  Complete the lesson and email or text me a copy of your final draft by Friday.  I chose this lesson so that we could get practice using a few more FODs.  They are topographia, mimesis, and topothesia.  Remember, you do not have to keep the same characters in your story or even the same plot, but your story should illustrate the commonplace or moral of the story. And just a reminder, your composition teacher for next year will continue to use the Fable stage book along with new books, so don’t throw this…
