Tonight you are going to finish reading book one of Great Expectations. This is quite an accomplishment. As we discussed today in class, Pip is beginning to change. Pay attention to this change, because it is quite stark. Don't forget - vocabulary cards are due on Thursday! You only have to do three, for three days of reading homework.
If you were absent from class today, you will definitely want to see someone for the notes - there were some very good points brought up by many in the studio audience. Again, continue to pay attention to the tiniest details.
Finally, those of you interested in the 8-__ page paper option will want to begin thinking about a topic now. This is a very wide open assignment, and I will need to work with each of you individually in the beginning to help you decide on a topic. Please come and see me.
Tonight you need to read "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell. It's the first story in your literature books. Many of you, who have read The Hunger Games will appreciate a lot of the similarities between the plots. It's a really fantastic story that, I think, will satiate a lot of desire amongst you for a bit of a change of pace in the reading.
Furthermore, we will begin reading our novel A Separate Peace very soon. I would recommend that if you are, like me, a slower reader that you begin reading in advance. I'll be giving out novels very soon if you would like one to accomplish this. This coming weekend would be a great chance to try chapter one on for size...
