We began this week with an activity on goal setting for the new year. Students responded to the following prompt:
Resolutions for the new year:
- Come up with two resolutions for the new year. One resolution should be school-related. The other resolution can be anything you like.
- Often times, people struggle to achieve their resolutions. Why do you think this is?
- What can you do to make sure you achieve your resolutions?

Next, we continued working on the prewriting steps for a literary analysis essay on the novel, Of Mice and Men. I handed out an assignment sheet for the rough draft of the essay (attached below). We discussed different aspects of the assignment. Students made progress on the essay steps, and I assisted students in their work.
For homework, continue making progress on your essay work. The rough draft of the essay is due by Friday, 1/12.
