  I have mentioned HOOPLA in some classes but not others. 

Hoopla is a free service provided by our public libraries. 

You can download it as an app on your phone or use it on your computer. Basically, it provides a way to access ebooks and audiobooks FOR FREE as long as you provide the number of your library card!  Which, if you don't have one, GO GET ONE! it's FREE.

Anyway, you can use it to access an audio recording of To Kill a Mockingbird and listen to the assigned chapters for at home reading.

    It has come to my attention that MANY of you are forgetting to put your name on your paper. Please know that this is NOT OKAY. It is not efficient and you will receive a "Z" in the grade- book until you claim your paper or quiz or test! 

If you do happen to see a "Z" for something you turned-in, then DO NOT EMAIL ME. When you get to class, ask me to check the no-name pile. 

When you do claim your paper, it will be a letter grade off. I counted a total of 25 papers today without names. 

Writing your name is the VERY FIRST THING YOU DO THE SECOND YOU TAKE OUT A SHEET OF PAPER. Please, let's fix this issue ASAP!

Please be sure to read chapters 2 & 3 for homework. 

Be sure to annotate using the annotation guide. 

Ch. 2 & 3 Annotations should include: 
- Annotate for vocabulary in both chapters
- Annotate the pg's that discuss Scout's and Miss Caroline's first day of school mishap. Scout is entering the exciting and perhaps, a bit confusing, world of school. Provide some thoughts on the instance that occurs. 
- Annotate the characterization of Walter Cunningham. 
- What happens with Scout and Walter Cunningham?
- How does Jem respond to Scout and Walter's situation? 
- What do we learn about the Ewells in this chapter? 
- What IMPORTANT LESSON DOES ATTICUS TEACH SCOUT in this chapter? What might this lesson possibly reveal about the novel's theme?  

- What does this show about Jem? 

* Please understand the above is just a GUIDELINE to the most important scenes (main ideas) in the chapters. However, you should be annotating beyond the aforementioned bullet points, the same way we went over in class when completing the Annotation Guide. 

P.S. IF you read the chapters, you'll totally get it...

Homework #1: Please read and thoroughly annotate the first six paragraphs of To Kill a Mockingbird in chapter one.

Remember to use your annotation guide! This is very important because the first six paragraphs are the hardest to understand. Take it as a CHALLENGE to see how well you can comprehend. Remember to read the paragraphs once, and then go back paragraph by paragraph and annotate. YOU GOT THIS!!!

P.S. There will be a quiz upon your return on the first six paragraphs, and then a test for Unit 1 Vocabulary. 

Homework #2: In your journal, complete the topic below (remember you can always use any of the vocabulary words to acquire extra points!) 

Topic: Describe a time (or times) when you witnessed or experienced injustice because of age, gender, or ethnicity. What was your reaction? What, if anything, could have been done to prevent or change the situation? 

Be sure to write about a real situation/situations from your own life or things you've witnessed in our larger culture. Your quickwrite needs to be at least two-thirds of a page.
