English 2 – Friday, January 6th

Book trailers.  Annotation: a review or overview of what it is, why we should annotate, how to annotate.  Read:  “The Rockpile” by James Baldwin.  Begin annotating as a class – find characters, make marginal notes.

Assignment:  Continue annotating things you find in the story – plot, setting, events, side-stories, in particular the top of 366 (what do we learn there?).

Be sure to get a writer’s notebook for Monday and find a book you want to read.
