Happy Halloween, and I hope that you had a good PSAT day yesterday!

Today in class:

  1. I’m taking up permission slips to see the extra credit movie (The Joy Luck Club) tomorrow after school.
  2. I took up $5 from students who wanted to order a copy of The Count of Monte Cristo.
  3. We went over the 11th story in JLC.
  4. We continued to talk about pronouns — here is that handout (Pronouns Packet).

Homework for tonight is the 12th story (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 12).

Tuesday, October 29

Today in class, we will:

  1. continue to talk about JLC
  2. assign your next chapter (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 11), which will be due on THURSDAY (not tomorrow, because of the PSAT)
  3. talk about your next hero project assignment (a timeline) in Google Classroom, due on Tuesday, November 5
  4. hand out permission slips to see the Joy Luck Club movie for extra credit this Friday afternoon (it will start at 4:00 and end at 6:00)
