There's a few things coming down the pike that I want to make sure you're all aware of. Here's a bit of information on these tasks coming up:
- For tonight read E.B. White's "Once More to the Lake"; it is in 50 Essays or at this link. Remember to read and annotate - look for Transcendentalism in there!
- Your vocabulary cards are due on Monday. Remember that you need to have five cards from your bookmarks.
- We will likely have an exam on Wednesday of next week on these non-fiction and philosophical pieces. Prepare for that by reviewing your notes - I'll give a more guided review on Monday.
- Our first novel of the year is The Great Gatsby - we will likely begin this next Friday. I would recommend purchasing your own copy of all of our novels as they will be heavily annotated by you!
Your homework is to read the excerpts from Persepolis and answer the questions on each excerpt. Remember to have a record of what you have read by doing notes or writing down observations in the margins of the text.
