We opened today’s class with a short discussion of Orientalism in The Count of Monte Cristo. Then students practiced vocabulary words from CMC List 3 by relating them to Harry Potter, in preparation for our quiz on Monday (please remember – the quiz will have words from all three CMC lists – you can study using the lists on Vocabulary.com). Finally, we discussed using gerunds and gerund phrases. Please see me for gerund handouts – in the meantime, you can study gerunds using this website and this website.

Remember that your documented essay (WORTH A MAJOR GRADE) is due on Monday. Please turn it in with your rubric. If you need help putting together your Works Cited page, I would recommend Citation Machine or Easy Bib.

And I pushed the due date for CMC Reading Guide 7 until Tuesday!
