Welcome back from our five-day weekend!

Lots of stuff today. We started with some important announcements:

  • Please bring your blue vocabulary book to class tomorrow, as we will be covering Dracula Vocabulary List 1. We will have a quiz over those words (as well as review over gerunds, participles, and appositives) on Monday.
  • There will be an extra credit movie this Friday afternoon! It will be Dracula Untold. The film should end slightly after 5:00 PM. If you choose to attend, you must make sure that you are not talking or disrupting others who are trying to watch. I will ask noisy students to leave.

In class, we spent most of our time going over some important background info about the novel (Dracula Schema Guide).

Homework for tonight is to read Chapter 1 and complete the reading guide by going to the “Dracula” tab of the class website, scrolling all the way to the bottom, clicking “Chapter 1,” scrolling all the way to the bottom of that page, downloading the reading guide, and responding to the questions via Make sure that you are submitting your assignment to the correct section — if you turn your homework in to the wrong period, you will not get credit.
