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.”
