The School Year Winds Down, As Does the "Twain" Unit

Our Mark Twain author study unit continued with a viewing of the Disney's Tom and Huck, followed by a non-fiction article about the author's world wide fame and his family.
Then, we watched an episode of TV's Ghost Hunters, in which the paranormal investigators tried to determine if Twain's Hartford, Connecticutt home was haunted.
We'll conclude our unit by an reading an excerpt of Susy Clemens' biography of her father, as well as an excerpt from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
I'll post information pertaining to the ELA 7 final exam (which will cover only material from the fourth marking period) later this week.
