Chaim Potok, The Chosen
Study Guide to be done in class with the exception of the pre-read (if you should happen to see this in time). We will cover pre-read in class, but hopefully, you looked up the author in order to discuss him in your reading journal.
I selected a pre-fabbed study guide for our first book because one, it is excellent, and two, it will afford us class time to learn how to structure your journals. Continue to use your reading journal that you started in summer as a means to write notes to yourself that you don't necessarily want to share with your peers or me. The new journal, your marbled copybook I requested you buy in the summer via email, is an ongoing ledger that I will periodically grade. Your journal is a record of your intellectual journey (journey-journal). Please keep up with assignments because we easily forget rich, poignant remarks that help us learn.
