Tonight you need to read section two of Gogol's "The Overcoat". As you read, make sure to complete the following tasks:
- Collect five new vocabulary words. Collect more if you want, but five is the minimum.
- Take notes on the symbol of Akaky's coat. Why do you think it is important? What does it symbolize?
- Take notes on how Akaky changes as a person - go back to what we've discussed in section one and compare how he is now in section two. What causes these changes?
Don't forget we will have a quiz on Friday to start class on section two. If you take good notes you'll do well on the quiz!
Russian I, II, and III
We have exams coming up on Friday. Russian II/III - You'll be having your case exam. Make sure that you're studied and prepared with nouns, adjectives, and pronouns of all types. Use your notes and your grammar review packets to help you to prepare. We've been drilling this information daily so you should be ready to go.
For Russian I we will have our alphabet and phonics test. Make sure that you know all of the letters and their sounds. The handwriting helpers will be gone, so know your stuff!
