After taking a quick survey evaluating Ms. Dailey for her program at CU, students re-read ch. 24, which was due today, this time annotating on a copy we provided. This lead to a discussion of the events of ch. 24. Afterwards, students finished watching the trial scene from the film version of Mockingbird. Homework: read ch. 25–26 for Monday.
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.
