We started the new vocab 7 and will stay with the 2 week cycle we normally have employed all year. We also began reading The Great Gatsby on Weds. We finished chapter 1, with Ms. Wynkoop reading most of it to us and commenting on it as we will later write a literary analysis of it.  There is a PPT with life of Fitzgerald and information related to symbolisn, etc. for the novel, but Ms. Wynkoop put notes on the board; she frequently comments on the reading as we go along, explaining allusions, imagery, characterization.  Please keep notes because you can use them on a quiz. We will finish Chapter 2 by Friday.  A quiz on Chapters 1 and 2 will most likely follow on Monday, Feb. 5.  She also took a homework grade for vocab, just for its completion.  Be prepared.

More to come...
