Last class you had the opportunity to work on your pre-reading assignment for The Kite Runner. Remember that this is due TODAY! Part one should be posted to your blog, and part two should be handed in in hard copy form.
Today we looked at some terms associated with the middle east and countries like Afghanistan. So much of what we know about this region of the world is based on stereotypes so it is good to have a better understanding. We also worked on a map of Asia.
Don’t forget that your first reading “quiz” is on Monday, and the map is due at this time as well.
