Last week we started our first class novel, Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. Students are expected to keep with the assigned readings and be prepared for the reading quizzes that follow.
The first assigned reading is chapters 1 through 3. We’ll take a quiz on those chapters today (Monday, the 13th). The next reading assignment will be chapters 4 through 6, the quiz for this section will be on Thursday.
I’ve decided to slowly roll out the reading assignments and then I’ll increase our pace as we get further into the novel.
Side Note: I’ve advocated that students who are worried about the intensity of our readings should acquire an audiobook version of the text and read along as they listen.
