Happy Halloween, and I hope that you had a good PSAT day yesterday!
Today in class:
- I’m taking up permission slips to see the extra credit movie (The Joy Luck Club) tomorrow after school.
- I took up $5 from students who wanted to order a copy of The Count of Monte Cristo.
- We went over the 11th story in JLC.
- We continued to talk about pronouns — here is that handout (Pronouns Packet).
Homework for tonight is the 12th story (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 12).
Today in class, we talked about the beginning of the third section of the Joy Luck Club. Students took a vocabulary quiz, and homework is the 10th chapter of the book (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 10).
Today I will be at a conference, so you will have a substitute. During class, please read the selection from “The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” (The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother) and answer the questions (Rhetorical Analysis of The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother). This is due to the substitute at the end of class — you may not take it home.
After you are finished with your questions, please get started reading the next chapter of JLC and answering those questions (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 9) — that will be due on Monday.
Today in class, we continued to talk about both The Joy Luck Club and pronouns. We didn’t finish covering pronouns, so your quiz on Monday will only be over JLC Vocab Lists 1 and 2 (every word from #2 will be on it, and there will be 10 review words from #1).
No homework for tonight!
We continued talking about The Joy Luck Club today — please read the 8th story (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 8) for homework tonight. We also began talking about pronouns — we will continue that discussion tomorrow in preparation for our quiz.
Today in class, we went over the JLC Vocabulary List #2 in preparation for your quiz next Monday. The seventh JLC reading guide (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 7) is your homework for tomorrow.
On Monday, students took a quiz over the JLC List 1 words — if you missed it, you will need to make it up NEXT Friday (I will be at a conference this Friday). You also had time to get started on JLC RG 6 (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 6).
Today in class, we are going over JLC Vocab List 1 (your quiz on Monday will only be over those words) and doing a VR lesson on Guilin, China!
Your fifth JLC reading guide is due on Monday — here is a copy of that (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 5).
On Thursday we continued to read The Joy Luck Club.
