Today's class began with a quickwrite:
-What role does tradition hold in your life? Explain.
-What effects (positive/negative) does it have on your experience?
-Are you more grateful for or tired of the traditions that are a part of your life?
After writing, we discussed student responses to the quickwrite questions.
Then, we did an activity on the issue of identity. I have attached the activity below. If you were not in class, please complete the activity at home.
Next, we turned in the response to literature assignment for "The Prisoner Who Wore Glasses."
Lastly, I handed out the homework. It is also attached below.
