Homework and agenda:
HW reminders: Just focus on starting your independent work. I suggest making reading goals for yourself i.e. you will have 50 pages read in the next two weeks, half way complete by the end of September, etc. etc.
Agenda: first and third blocks need to finish book talks. Write and discuss the following: What is literary merit? Look at your AP terms packet. Would you be able to apply them to your best seller? That is to say, could your best seller be studied in an AP class or college lit class? Why or why not?
Notes and discussion of motif (in 6th and 7th--1st and 3rd will start with this next class)
