L/A Lab I, II
Both classes took a test on reviewed material as well as the meanings of the new roots we introduced a few weeks before. We will reintroduce the connectives before moving forward with thesaurus use for synonyms of words from their root decks. It would be helpful for them to practice drill work with their affix and root decks either during IS or at home (no more than 5-7 minutes at a time is necessary).
We have completed reading The Old Man & the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. The students are beginning writing their individual Literary Analysis based on our exploration of Characters, Symbolism, and Theme throughout our reading of the book. Writing and editing methods will be explored. It is my intention to have this completed before we view the play at the Ft. Harrison theater in mid November, but a thorough finished product is more important than the timeliness of its completion.
