Journaling in prep for discussion: The World According to A
Turn in one-pager on your core value
Affix your value card to our class poster

Begin to introduce vocabulary from Every Day and The Grapes of Wrath
Pass out vocabulary charts - add a synonym under the word, add an antonym under the definition, then use the third box to either write a sample sentence illustrating the word's meaning in context, or draw an image to show the word's meaning (you can switch off from word to word). You are highly encouraged to work ahead on this assignment, but it won't be due until next week sometime when we've introduced and talked about all of the words on the list. For every new word, you'll ultimately be responsible for knowing how to pronounce it, how to spell it, how to write a sentence using the word that shows that word's meaning-in-context, how to define it and give both synonyms and antonyms, and how to draw a picture to show the word's meaning. Don't panic: a quiz won't happen for at least a week and a half.

HW: Begin to work on the vocabulary assignment. You're welcome to work ahead--this won't be due until we have discussed all of the words in class. Please bring Every Day again tomorrow.
