Today, we spent almost an hour working on our research. This was the last in-class time will be given to work on our research before it is due on Friday. We spent the remainder of class discussing TKAM and what we know about the first two witnesses in the Tom Robinson trial. Homework: no reading so you can finish up your research notecards.
This class is an opportunity for students to develop and practice their skills in reading and analysis of literature as well as writing. Our various texts will be the vehicles through which they will hone their critical thinking abilities, and our writing exercises will be an outlet of expression for these abilities. We will be reading poetry, short fiction, novels, and dramatic texts. Our objectives are to master the elements of literature, practice the writing process, and improve organization of writing.
