Time Jan. 11, 2012

Today in class we reviewed our own short stories based on "The Story of An Hour" and did some peer review. This assignment needs to be edited, revised, typed and turned in on Monday, January 16.

As it was a double class period we also reviewed some new vocabulary from our next short story "The Lady, or the Tiger?" which we read in class. Students need to be prepared to discuss this in class tomorrow.
