If you are still interested in completing a spring break reading assignment, I would love to make that available to you. You need negotiate credit and due dates with me on an individual basis.
Begin your dialectical journal and read Book 1: Genesis of The Poisonwood Bible by Monday, 2/24.
Tomorrow, we will have a time in-class essay. You're going to do great. If you can, arrive a bit early to receive feedback and tips for approaching essays this semester.
Also, if you didn't receive feedback for your thesis statement, stop by or email me for feedback. Your first draft of the two page passage analysis essay is due this Sunday to turnitin.com.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Tomorrow, your group will lead the discussion based on your work in class today.
Remember, this work we are doing this week will set you up for success on your two page essay (first draft due Sunday) and the timed in-class essay on Friday. Keep your eye out for compelling thesis possibilities.
Finish the text and complete the Kurtz graphic organizer for Tuesday's class.
