Joy Luck Club Movie Survey

Hi students:

I would like to show you the Joy Luck Club film next week (it’s a really outstanding adaptation – Amy Tan co-wrote the screenplay).

This film is rated R and will require parent permission, although I will be skipping over some of the more mature scenes.

I’m trying to figure out if it’s better to have it on Thursday or Friday of next week, though, given that we’ll be on Thanksgiving break the following week and people might have travel plans. Would you please help me decide by responding to this quick survey?

Friday, November 9

After our JLC discussion today, we looked at the last part of speech we need to cover (although we’ll circle back to some others later) – interjections! Those materials are under the “Grammar” section of the website.

Homework for the weekend is to complete the conjunction and preposition videos and exercises on Khan Academy. Your Monday quiz will focus on conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections, but will also contain some review material from previous grammar objectives. (Just to be clear, there will not be any vocabulary.)
