After turning in their annotated second chapters of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, students completed a one-slide research presentation about reservations with a partner in Google Classroom. At the end of class, we discussed some of the agree/disagree statements from Monday.
This class is an opportunity for students to develop and practice their skills in reading and analysis of literature as well as writing. Our various texts will be the vehicles through which they will hone their critical thinking abilities, and our writing exercises will be an outlet of expression for these abilities. We will be reading poetry, short fiction, novels, and dramatic texts. Our objectives are to master the elements of literature, practice the writing process, and improve organization of writing.
