We don’t meet again until Sept 12– this time on a Wednesday schedule.
For homework, Using the plan for rereading you wrote in class, I would like you to REREAD Shop Class as Soulcraft (link is in the last post.) Take care to set yourself up in a place that will be conducive to good reading– play music if it helps, or stay quiet if that helps. Take breaks! Eat snacks! Use context clues to understand your vocabulary! Use a different color of ink to annotate this time. I will be collecting your articles at the end of this unit, so… don’t sleep on the reading, don’t sleep on the homework, don’t sleep on the annotation. I noticed some people in class hadn’t annotated at all (though many of you had.) It is really too early in the class to get behind, friends! You need to do this work to get a good grade on this unit and to write this paper.
PART TWO OF HOMEWORK: In your notebooks (you can type it and put it in there if that’s easier for you,) write 350 words at least of what you learned from rereading. USE AT LEAST TWO QUOTES to illustrate your points. That is, if you say that you learned something about the ways blue collar work was devalued in America, please pick a quote by Crawford that explains your point, and– most importantly, EXPLAIN CRAWFORD’S QUOTE IN YOUR OWN WORDS. This is important because we all read differently. YOUR readers are going to want to know what Crawford’s writing means to you.
PART THREE OF HOMEWORK: In the discussion forum on the Open Lab, write one SPECIFIC question you still have about the article. Link HERE
