Today we began reading Arthur Miller's classic play The Crucible. This is the beginning of our unit on American Fear. We will also be reading Edgar Allen Poe, some Stephen King and other authors who have also tried to scare us somehow, current political speeches excluded. (That was our last unit.)
There are also a few new features on the blog you can view. The first is a list of critical links on the upper right. These will include current assignments and our class calendar. The second gives you the option to become a follower of this blog. If you'd like to try that let me know how it works for you.
Progress report grades were distributed 4th period today.
