After discussing small and medium questions from To Kill a Mockingbird ch. 2–3, students completed a handout asking them to identify some of the people and places from the start of the novel. Students who finished early had time to begin reading ch. 4–5 and completing the reading guide. Homework: complete reading ch. 4–5 and finish the reading guide.
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.
