Friday, October 26

Important Announcement: Today I passed out permission slips for our field trip to the Chinese Community Center on Thursday, November 8. Please try to bring those back on Monday (or if not Monday, Tuesday). Also, it would be a big help if we could have some parents help chaperone, so see if yours are interested in coming with us!

In class today, we began with a discussion of the challenges faced by the second generation of women in The Joy Luck Club. After that, we had a lesson on pronouns — please see the grammar section of the website to review those materials.

You don’t have any homework over the weekend, but your quiz on Monday will be over JLC Vocab List 2 and pronouns.

Tuesday, October 23

We had a lot going on today! First, we passed back papers, and I gave you a letter to take home about the parent meeting for study abroad scholarships. Then we had a discussion about Waverly’s story in JLC. After that, students got their blue vocabulary books, and we talked about words 1-15 of List 2. And finally, you turned in your viewing guides for Snowflower and the Secret Fan.

Homework for tonight is the sixth story (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 6). You’ll have a substitute tomorrow — I expect that classes will only be around 10 minutes long because of the PSAT, so turn that in and be sure to get a copy of tomorrow’s homework.
