Monday, 2/1

I updated the due dates for The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn reading at the start of class:

  • through ch. 35 is now due on 2/9
  • end of novel is still due on 2/11

Then I gave students some feedback on their note cards/works cited from the equity mini-research project. We talked more about Huck Finn, including introducing some new topics for discussion and using satire as a lens through which to examine the text. At the end of class, I introduced the big research project for the semester — Build-a-Synthesis-Prompt. We discussed the overview of the project and due dates for each component as well as the details of the first few steps. Homework: read/annotate Huck Finn; ch. 35 is due on 2/9.
