I’m posting these to keep all of you updated despite dozens of absences over the past two weeks. PLEASE remember that you are responsible for completing work even if you are absent! Check with me or with a classmate for what you missed. This makes everyone’s lives easier, including your own.
Friday, December 6th: Independent Reading #2 due (reviews, multi-genre projects, and book chats must be completed BEFORE coming to class; one-pagers can be done DURING class. Bring your book if you plan to do a one-pager.) No excuses, no exceptions. You have had these due dates since September; also, they are hanging up on the bulletin board and you are given frequent verbal reminders.
Monday, December 9th: 1984 p. 23-53 due, plus study guide questions for chapters II-IV.
TUES. 12/10: Vocab quiz over 1984 List #2. The words: dupe, clandestine, lucid, derisive, vindictive, loathe, vivid, odious, din, voluptuous, inscrutable, equivocal, partisanship, stagnant, mutability, myriad, reproach, gilded, zealot, and labyrinthine.
