Due:

TKAM - Chapters 1-6 in Google Classroom

TKAM - Chapters 1-6

We will have a quiz on these chapters when we get back on 11/29.

I'm attaching a pdf of the Student Workbook, however, even with a pdf filler, it's a bit difficult to work on digitally because of the funky formatting - that's why I made you hard copies. If you opt to do your work digitally, you can work directly on your copy of the pdf OR (and this is the preferred method) take a photo of each page completed and submit as attachments to this assignment. Both methods are fully acceptable.


The Writing Prompts are on a separate doc - you can write them directly on their. The prompts are supposed to be fun/creative, so let yourself have fun with them (if possible).
