9th CP: This week we've been listening to the story "Big Boy Leaves Home" by Richard Wright. We are reading this story to prepare us for our next literary adventure, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. TKAM is one my favorite books of all time. It is poignant and at times disturbing look into the South's past when race relations were at their most strained. Once we finish "Big Boy" well being reading the novel.

10 Honors: We finished up reading Dante's Inferno this week. Today and tomorrow you will be writing a Gateway practice focused on the Dante's work as well as the time period in which he wrote it. We have pushed back the vocabulary quiz to Monday, March 1st.
