We are now proving how incredibly capable we all are. Students should be working on their Scarlet Letter chapter presentations. Students are encouraged to read Spark Notes before attempting the book itself. The presentations are the 27th and 28th of October.
We will be starting The Crucible in class next week. These two great works of literature have a lot in common. We will be doing reading journals that deal with characters, themes, plots and analysis. And of course, the discussions and timed writes will be intense.
We have been working in groups this week, too. Groups produced a comparison/contrast essay on Jonathan Edwards, the fiery Puritan minister, and Patrick Henry, a Patriot of the Revolution. If you weren't here, please get that in to me as soon as you can.
