We began today's class with a short quickwrite:
-What do you think of the novel, The Pearl, so far? What do you like and/or dislike about it?
We discussed student responses and then went over the homework for chapters 1-2 of The Pearl.
Next, we did an in-class writing assignment based on the "songs" that Kino mentions in the novel. This assignment is attached below.
Lastly, I handed out your homework. Please read chapter 3 and complete the assignment by next class.
