january 24

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Sympathy for the Devil" by The Rolling Stones]

Sometimes when we start a book it's easy to get impatient with all the background information the author gives (on places, characters etc.) before something actually happens.  Why do we get all of this stuff first?  How does it help to know these things when the action starts and the plot gets going?  What would we miss if The Great Gatsby started with a chase scene?

1. Journal/ discuss exposition and getting the reader to lean in
2. The Great Gatsby  (please make a note of where your class starts/stops reading for the day)

HW: Post GREAT GATSBY NOTES 2 to your blog
