WELCOME BACK B DAY!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Today's Activity: We're kicking off a new unit; John Knowles' classic, A Separate Peace. It is the story of Gene Forrester, who visits his old boarding school 15ish years after graduating, 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 kick off the week, I have a Presentation on the author John Knowles and the historical context behind the novel.

This whole unit is designed to build a routine we can use for the rest of the year, and I'm here to help keep you on schedule, encourage best practices, and drive home good habits.

Homework: A Separate Peace, Chapter 1 dialectical journal.
