Welcome back! Today in class, we will be starting off the semester by looking at some vocabulary for an excerpt from a book that we will be reading in class — “The Black Count,” which is a biography of Alexandre Dumas’s father, the inspiration for The Count of Monte Cristo.
One week from today we will be starting Dracula — again, we don’t have enough copies of the book to check out to everyone. You can:
- purchase a copy yourself (I recommend the Dover thrift edition — that matches the page numbers on the reading guide)
- purchase a copy from the school for $5
- go to Half Price books or another used bookstore
- see if an older sibling or friend can lend you their copy
- read the text online
No homework for tonight!
