Wednesday, January 8

Today in class, we read Roald Dahl’s excellent short story, “Lamb to the Slaughter.” Here is an electronic version if you would like to read it at home.

Your homework for tonight is to vote on your classmates’ two-sentence scary stories:

If your last name starts with A – M, click here to vote on this set of stories.

If your last name starts with N – Z, click here to vote on this set of stories.

Another very important announcement: On January 21, we will begin reading Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. You will need to get a copy of this book – Bellaire does not have many to check out. Other books we will be reading this semester that you need to find include Jeanette Walls’ The Glass Castle and Daniel Woodrell’s Winter’s Bone.
