Thursday, 10/15

We talked about perception today in anticipation of beginning our reading of To Kill a Mockingbird. This is an idea that will be central to this novel. We spent time looking at some optical illusions, discussing the different things we saw in them, and then journalling about what is perception and what can affect our perception of tangible and intangible things. Students then received photocopies of ch. 1 of the novel to read and annotate. Homework: finish your reading and annotation of ch. 1 for class next Tuesday.
