In today's class, we began by going over the news article from last class.
We watched a couple short videos on the news story to begin. They are located at the bottom of this webpage:
We then went over some of the homework questions, and I then collected your homework.
Next, I introduced the first step of our character analysis essay assignment for The Pearl. This first step is to collect textual evidence (quotes and passages from the novel) that you will eventually use in your essay to support your claims. This in-class assignment is attached below. I will give you more time to finish this assignment next class. There is no homework, as tomorrow is Veterans Day.
