This nine weeks, we will read three in-class novels/drama: Speak, The Kite Runner or Thousand Splendid Suns, and The Crucible, which will count as four of your six required reads for this grading period. Please complete the other two on your own.
First blog post topic for this nine weeks: The new unit that we are starting is entitled The Bullying Mentality. Prepare a post on this topic in which you give an instance when bullying is the wrong behavior choice and then an instance when bullying is a positive choice. This would be a four-paragraph minimum post.
