Spring Trip Wrap-Up

Hey guys,

Your blue folders are due to me by Thursday! Finish 'em up and get 'em in, please. This is an opportunity for you to consider which colleges would best suit you. Where would you fit in? Which schools have the programs, size, location, and communities you like? Will you apply to any of the four schools we visited?

Thanks for a fabulous Spring Trip!

Fahrenheit 451

And so Science Fiction begins... Please read to page 48 in Fahrenheit 451 by Thursday.

On Thursday in class, after our reading quiz, we'll discuss how motifs can contribute to meaning in a text. We'll also choose "motif groups" so you can track a particular one as you read.

Fahrenheit 451 is an amazing read with an absolute TON to discuss. Please come to class prepared :)

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Lit Circles

Lit Circle #2 is tomorrow! Be sure to come prepared with your reading done and your role sheet completed. These discussions are ever-powerful... as long as you put in the time and effort beforehand to make them that way.

Hope you guys are enjoying your mysteries!
