Tuesday, 1/13

We began our reading of Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian today; students annotated on photocopies of ch. 1 while I read out loud. Then we switched to an article from the Washington Post about the controversy surrounding the name of the local NFL team, which students read silently and annotated. At the end of class, we discussed this article together before I showed students the Mascot Mini-Research activity on Google Classroom they will be working on Thursday. Homework: read and annotate ch. 2 of Part-Time Indian to turn in next class.
