Language Arts II
I apologize for not getting these up sooner! I have started posting on Google Classroom daily and decided to still post here as well in order to allow parents to still see what is going on in the class. I did link the Classroom Calendars to the “Google Class Assignments” page. It posts the assignments on their DUE DATES, which I will try to address to make things post on the day assigned as well.

Page 261 – Language Link: Comparisons and Analogies
Starting from the line “He had waited too long!” on page 256, rewrite the ending of “Trap of Gold.” Suppose this line turns out to be literally true. What would happen to Wetherton? Write a NEW ENDING. Include at least TWO COMPARISONS (analogy, metaphor, simile, personification) to describe the setting–underline them on your paper. You do not need to submit this via Classroom. You may write on your own paper. Due at the end of the hour.
