On Thurs and Friday (May 15 and 16) we read and interpreted A Midsummer Night's Dream in class. A quiz will follow Act III. 
Speeches begin on Monday, May 19th and go through the week...DON'T MISS your date!

I have posted both hours lists so you can see when you are scheduled.

Remember that your speech MUST be a minimum of 4 MINUTES, and try to limit it to 6.  PRACTICE!  Your visual should be a help, too.

Put forth your best effort.
