Week 1– Song Parody and EE Day

Well… We didn’t see each other a whole lot this week.

Monday– Opening ceremony took our first two classes, so nothing to talk about for that

Tuesday– We had one period and you got the outline for the song parody project.  Here is a link if you lost it: Project 0– Song Parody The Bluest Eye

I have made a YouTube playlist that will help you get some social context so that you can better understand the issues of race that color the themes of the text. 

Friday– We were in the library “working” on your EE’s.

Next steps– Work on your song parody this weekend… Read the book!

So, if you can mimic one funny animal to me Thursday in class, I will give you 5 bonus points.
