You will have a substitute teacher today because I will be attending the Utah Council of English Teachers Conference and meeting Neal Shusterman, author of  The Schwa Was Here, Antsy Does Time,  Unwind, and others.   You will accomplish much while I am gone, I trust.

P.T.S.A. Reflections entries are due by Wednesday, October 19.   Extra credit is available in English class for entering the literature division.

Book orders are due by the 14th.  I could send an order before that if I receive enough requests.

Self-Starter:  Students completed a packet about "The Perfect Paragraph."  If you were absent, pick up a packet from the back of the room.

The class watched part  of  The Outsiders.
 A1 to the point where Johnny and Ponyboy at the lot.
A2 to Johnny and Ponyboy on the train.
A3 to Johnny and Ponyboy getting help from Dally before leaving town.
A4 to Dally, Johnny, and Ponyboy at the Dairy Queen.

Students filled out a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the movie and book so far.
