This week we will begin reading our class novel, Animal Farm. This is a fairy tale that critiques the results of the Russian Revolution. We will be conducting studies of the rhetoric and characterization in the text. You will have mini-projects daily to help increase your understanding of the text. In addition, you should be reading your dystopian novel for homework between 15-20 minutes nightly. Please make sure that you are checking Synergy regularly concerning your grade. You can still attend Afterschool Tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 -5:00pm. In addition, on WEDnesday the English Department will host DEADLY EVER AFTER - a murder mystery event at 6:00 pm in the upstairs Betty Gray. Join us and discover which one of your book story characters is involved in murder.
