Wednesday, November 13

A few announcements:

  1. We will have an extra credit movie Friday after school — it’s Marie Antoinette, and it should give you some good background for The Count of Monte Cristo. You should be finished by 6:00 PM.
  2. The books were delayed, but they should be getting in tomorrow. Consequently, there is no homework for tonight, but you will have a big chunk of reading tomorrow. To help with that, all of tomorrow in class will be dedicated to reading — you can bring a blanket and a snack if you would like.
  3. You can also earn some extra credit by attending Bellaire Theatre’s performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Please bring your ticket stub and take a picture of yourself there.

In class today, we went over the first CMC vocabulary list — your quiz on Monday will only be over those words (no grammar!). With the remaining time, students continued to work on the stations from yesterday.
