MC Lit & Rhetoric – Tuesday, September 5th

First day of Lit. Circle #1 (YOU NEED the book of your choice OR you will be assigned a book that is available).

Book talk & Indie read.  Think about setting up a reading schedule for your novel of choice (from the 7 listed on the syllabus) by dividing the # of pages by 10 and making that your goal for each day.  Go ahead and read ahead if you want.  Mostly, consider how you would talk with your friends about a favorite TV show or movie – that’s  how you need to be able to discuss this book.  Plan to be FINISHED with your book by Friday 9/15.

Read:  My First Encounter with Racism from the youthradio website (4 essays by students).  Notebook write:  “My first (memorable) experience with racism.”
