Heather McCollister

Class Name: Dialectics Literature 2

This week’s focus: The Story Chart and Images

In preparation for Schole support class:

Read from 100 Great Short Stories – The Selfish Giant on page 300, 3 different times this week. In the Resource Library, you will find a Story Chart, one filled in, and one empty. Do your best to fill in the different spaces given using the story The Selfish Giant.
The Art of Poetry – Read through the poems and questions in Chapter 1 – Images. Be prepared in class to share one poem, that created powerful images for you or an image that is important to you.
As you are able, begin reading The Adventures of Huck Finn. I would suggest Chapter 1-6.

To be completed this week:

Please send me your autobiographical poem before our first class on Sept. 24, just so I have a chance to get to know you!
