Reading Logs due THURSDAY with 12 hours and parent signature.
Vocab Quiz THURSDAY (full lists attached to this post).

8th LA
Complete BK builders.
In class we looked at (1) the chronology of Pearl Buck's life from the book intro (xvii-xviii),
(2) the introductory speech from the Nobel banquet,
(3) I talked about and summarized the Chinese Novel and
(4) we watched the 2 minute video. (Sorry first hour, I will show it to you tomorrow).
 You are to have notes on your BK builder that list the source and some things you learned about Pearl Buck and why this novel is important historically.
 Tonight list a new source "The Life and Work of Pearl Buck" (pg. ix-xi in the front of your book, three pages) and add anything else you learned to your BK builder. BK builders are due tomorrow. (see attached)

Plan to read to page 98 by MONDAY.

7th LA
You have read and summarized (in a key word outline) the first 12 pages of the book. Tonight you are filling in a compare and contrast chart between you and Anne. I am looking for 30 things. Crests will be awarded, so think deeply and note your insights.


Thinking caps. You and your partner will write your plan for the resolve tomorrow.
Resolve that...school uniforms will improve education.
Step one: define terms (What is a uniform and what does improve education mean for your debate)
Step two: insert evidence
Step three: measure cost impact
I look forward to helping you with your ideas in class tomorrow. DUE the end of class.
