We are working on reading strategies now. The first short story we are reading is "The Bet" by Anton Chekov. Students will finish reading this September 3rd, along with choosing words from the story that they want to know forever - or at least until June. They will also be creating their own "solitary confinement" situation. If they were to be in total solitude for 15 years as the main character in the book, what would their lodge look like? What kind of books would they ask for? What kind of music would they listen to?
Next up: The Pedestrian. A story by Ray Bradbury
