Friday, Nov. 17th

We finished our discussing and quizzing on chapters 7-11 from last class, and wrote in our READING JOURNAL.  This was collected at the end of class.

We then finished watching Mississippi Burning and related the events in the film to those of the novel.  I have decided not to rush through the novel in order to complete it for Term One.  Instead, I will just included whatever we get done by Dec. 4th on the first report card.  This WILL INCLUDE the reading journal.

You should have read chapters 12-15 for today, but we will discuss these chapters next class (Tuesday).  Feel free to read chapters 16-20 for Thursday’s class.
