We agreed to have read up to the end of Chapter Six before Monday's class that is right after lunch (please remember to take notes in your Study Guide). I plan to review the the Chapter 2-6 questions, Monday - be ready to participate. Commenting to this post is fully optional but I'm sure your peers would appreciate your shared thoughts. Have a nice weekend.
Read to the end of Chapter Four before Monday's class. In lieu of answering study guide questions, please remember to publish a comment that mentions something about Chapter Four to this post. You may include ideas from Chapter Three. You may wish to comment on the relationships that Holden has with others his age. If you don't have Internet access, post at school before 10:20, Monday. Have a nice weekend.
Please read up to page 94 or 96 (don't forget some notes in the Study Guide). You may choose to comment with this post in response to your reading. We will compose topic sentences and write a page 11 paragraph during our next class. I was pleased with your level of focus and the quality of your ideas during Friday's classes.

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.
You did well during our first lesson with The Catcher in the Rye. Please be sure to have Chapter 2 read for Thursday. I'll be checking your study guides for entries. You should expect a brief reading check (quiz) for Chapter 1-2.
