Due to a change in scheduling, student midterms will take place Thursday/Friday of this week.
Today, once students have finished their warm-ups, they will go on to be introduced to their next class novel The Joy Luck Club. After the introduction, students will read the selection "The Lady in the Moon." It is a Chinese folktale mentioned in the passage. As we read, students will annotate the passage and then we will discuss it.
Finally, students will be introduced to their Asia Research Project. They will select 1 country from a provided list to research. Students are to then take their research and create a travel brochure, poster, or commercial that shares their research as well as encourages people to visit their country. Once they are introduced to their project, students will be given the rest of the class period to work on their research.
