En 11 Reading for Thursday, 9 Sept.

Thanks for being receptive and willing to participate in our first TOMATS lesson - I promise not to talk so much next time.  The novel is very much about Santiago and in addition to responding to the study guide focus questions, try to continuously ask yourself "Who is this guy, Santiago? What makes him tick?"  Expect routine reading quizzes so I can gauge the level of your understanding.  Please be read up to page 41 for Thursday (including the appropriate study responses).

Please have Chapter 2 read for Thursday.  Don't forget to give page citations for your study guide responses.  We will be using the COW laptops to write our first readers' responses on Thursday.  If you wish to be keeners, you can do a little extra reading on Stalin and his management of the USSR.  Orwell's references to three-year plans and the like will then make more sense to you - Wikipedia should suffice.
