English I students worked on voice and tone in the opening pages of To Kill a Mockingbird. We began examing the first pages to determine the presence of certain stylistic characteristics:
- Long sentences
- Dated language
- Folksy-sounding language
We also looked at several topical issues:
- Importance of family
- Sense of community
- Importance of religion
- Importance of time, place, and the past
English 8 students picked up their Friday work again, with this quarter’s minimum word count increasing to 150 words.
- English 8 Studies: none.
- English I Honors:
- begin working on the Mockingbird vocabulary on Quizlet;
- continue working on the Romeo and Juliet project.
