I was absent again today due to the AP mock exam. Students read to p. 101 in Part-Time Indian. Then they went to Google Classroom to complete the Novel Check-In assignment and begin the Turning Topics into Questions assignment. Homework: finish any of the Google Classroom assignments from today you didn’t get done in class; the Novel Check-In should have been completed by the end of class, but the Turning Topics into Questions one isn’t due until Sunday night at 11:59.
SECOND SEMESTER, 2014–15
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.
