First and foremost, your Quarterly Exam is tomorrow. Hopefully you utilized the study guide I gave you in class. Best of luck!
Your Extra Credit is also due tomorrow and your Poetry Project is due Friday. :-)
We're kicking off a new unit; John Knowles' classic, A Separate Peace. It is the story of Gene Forrester, a man of about 30 years old, who visits his old boarding school, Devon and thinks back to his time there when he was 16. This book is truly a coming of age story where one realizes that sometimes you keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. :-)
To get a greater sense of what we are about to embark on, I highly recommend seeing a personal favorite of mine: Dead Poet's Society.
