Your Kite Project was due today.  Those of you who did not hand it in today only have until Monday to hand it in as the end of term is next week.

Today we passed around 5 discussion topics that will become your in-class write topics on Tuesday. The topics were:

  • Is Amir a selfish character?  Does he redeem himself?
  • Can you bury the past or will it come back to haunt you?
  • Our childhood experiences determine who we become.
  • betrayal and redemption
  • Hero of The Kite Runner? Amir or Hassan?

Don’t forget that for your in-class write you may use any notes you have in your binder as well as your novel.  You may also work on these topics over the weekend so that you will be prepared with ideas to respond to the write options.  You will only write on ONE of the topics.

Up next will be speeches and The Crucible.
