Today we finished talking about the text of the novel Dracula — now we’ll be moving on to the play. A few important announcements:
- You won’t have a vocabulary quiz on Monday; instead, you’ll have a STAAR-style exam related to Dracula. It will consist of a fiction passage, a nonfiction passage, and a poem that you have not read before, and you will be assessed on critical reading ability using multiple choice questions.
- Although you don’t have reading homework over the next two weeks, you do have an individual project (Dracula Creative Response) — this will be due on Monday, February 24. Please work ahead so that you don’t have an overwhelming amount of work the weekend before it’s due.
- You will also be working in groups to perform a scene from the play next Thursday and Friday during class (the 20th and the 21st). Here are those instructions (Dracula Scene Performance Rubric and Play Sections).
