Twain Time:2012

May finds our ELA 7 class engaged in a study of author Mark Twain.
We started by reading together the story that put him on the literary map: "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County."
You can check out an interesting claymation version of the story here
Next, we read the famous "whitewashing episode" from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
For those planning ahead, The final exam in ELA 7 is scheduled for Monday, June 18. It will be a test that covers only material from the final 10 weeks of school (mostly content from our Mark Twain unit).
