Homework for the Weekend - B Day Students - 11/1/2013

Happy November Everyone!  Here are your reminders for the weekend:

Honors English II

This weekend you have to read the next two chapters of Siddhartha, "The Ferryman" and "The Son".  As you read these chapters, be sure to pay attention to the character of Vasuveda.  He's a significant person in this text made even more significant by the fact that he is introduced to us so close to the end of the text.  Furthermore, continue to draw links and connections between the ideas that you are seeing in this text.  You all did some great thinking today in class related to the overall messages in this text.  Keep doing that work.

ESL English III

This weekend's assignment is an extra credit opportunity for you.  Using your vocabulary from chapters four and five which you collected in class I want you to write a brief story (8-12 sentences) using at least six of the new words from your lists.  Make sure that you underline your new words when you use them.  Also be sure that you know the meaning of the word.  You will not get credit for using a word if you use it incorrectly.
