Week of January 30th

Post was updated to accommodate Tuesday's snow day. All changes are in red.

In every class this week, we are going to be reading and analyzing literature. We're getting deeper into our respective works and I'm sure we will be doing more analyzing this week than we did last. With each class this week, I want to focus on the differences between a first read, and a close read.

CDT Testing will occur for my classes on Wednesday, February 15th and Thursday, February 16th. Make-up testing will be Friday, February 17th.
