Goals: Proofread and turn in Close Reading Responses. Read and annotate one nonfiction article. Complete the No Red Ink pretest.


  • You can find all Outsiders work at  bit.ly/staygoldGV
  • If you are done with The Outsiders, get a new book to read.

  • Download Google Chrome from Self Service if you have not done so.
