Today in class, I collected the final drafts of the Happiness essays. If yours is still not complete, please get it to me as soon as possible!
Next, I handed out our class novel, The Pearl, which we will begin reading as part of tonight's homework. I gave a powerpoint introduction to the novel and we did an activity involving some of the themes of the novel.
Your homework over the weekend is as follows:
-Read chapters 1 and 2 of The Pearl.
-Complete the literary response questions.
-Over the next week, collect 10 new vocabulary words from your reading of The Pearl. For each word, write the word, a definition of the word, and an original sentence using the word.
