A Raisin/Unit Test: Feb 16-17


  1. Students took the unit test for Lorraine Hansberry’s play, A Raisin in the Sun.
  2. Students who finished before the end of the block used the remainder of class time to read independently.
  3. Mrs. Skotnicki wrote library passes for students who needed a second book for February break.
  4. Mrs. Skotnicki introduced the final assessment, Create Drama, a dramatic creative writing assignment.
  5. We watched a PBS video about Bruce Norris’s play, Clybourne Park, to see how another writer created a spin-off from A Raisin in the Sun.


  • Continue to read independently. Meet or exceed your weekly page goal.
  • Be thinking about what angle you would like to take in your scene.
