September 5, 2006 – 4th period

We began class by discussing the term Point of View.  Eduardo was able to come up with a great definition.  Principal Gipson came to the class and gave a brief background of her experiences and her commitment to education.  The class was then required to write a brief accounting, in their point of view, of what Ms. Gipson said.  This was an exercise in listening, note-taking and perspective.

We also discussed direct and indirect characterization as well as inference.  We began reading a short story called “Blues Ain’t No Mockin Bird: by Toni Cade Bambara.
