Today, we did some introductory stuff which included looking at the syllabus for the year as well as introducing, or reintroducing, the ideas of social realism/naturalism associated with Steinbeck’s novel. You have an impromptu essay tomorrow. My suggestion is to familiarize yourself with the plot, characters, etc. Also, your summer reading quote analysis assignment is due by 7:40 am tomorrow morning to turnitin.com. Here are turnitin.com instructions if you accidentally lost the handout from today. Here’s the Grapes calendar.
