For the 2nd 9 weeks, we will be looking at the essential question: "What is loyalty?"  We will be reading Inside The Magic Kingdom: Seven Keys to Disney's Success by Tom Connellan as our whole class novel for the 2nd 9 weeks. Students DO NOT have to buy the book. We have a classroom set.  We will also be doing an independent reading project 2nd 9 weeks.  Students will pick a book of their choice (must be at least 300 pages and 8th grade level or higher) to read.  They will be given a month to read the book and then be given 5 project options to choose from to go along with the book they read.


 12/4- 12/15
