PERIOD 2 & 4, THIS IS FOR YOU!

We will be reading this in class for the next month. I would like you to comment here as you read each set of chapters. This is a great way to boost your grade and show me that you are serious about your education. Each post you thoughtfully and extensively prepare and publish will earn you 10 extra credit points. Please look at my comments in the comment section to see what the prompt is; it will change from chapter to chapter.

You should also know that you can use my computer during lunch, before school and after school on odd days. See me to schedule computer time if you do not have access at home. I am here to help if you need it, but it's ultimately up to you. I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT.

It is not for a lack of ability that we fail; rather, it's from a lack of effort.

HERE IS YOUR EXTRA CREDIT QUESTION:

What do you hope to gain (academically or emotionally) from reading this novel?

nelson said...

I hope to gain emotionally from this novel because I never really felt like an outsider and I wouldnt want to make anybody feel like an outsider

Good.

Here is the next question for Chapters 1-8:

Have you ever treated someone the way Chan and Young are being treated. If not, why. If so, how does this novel make you more aware of alienating people?

C-Rod said...

HERE IS YOUR EXTRA CREDIT QUESTION FOR CHAPTERS 9-17:

Now that Chan has made the football team, is it going to be easier for him to make friends, or will he continue to feel alienated? Explain.

Use specific examples from the text to support your answer.

SMILE!

I think it will still be tough on Chan to make more friends but the friends he has now makes him feel good and not alienated.
