We picked our lit circle books today and divvied out the pages and lit circle roles. The first discussion day is on November 2 (this next Wednesday). Make sure that you get a packet from me. I won't post it here.
Today we turned in our final projects on why fantasy matters and finished the book shares on the series projects. To end class, we discussed the impact of the Harry Potter on the literary world and the world in general. Finally, we turned in our hall passes.
