High School Book Club
When do we meet? What Do I need to know?
FIRST BOOK: Pudd'nhead Wilson by Mark Twain
We will meet on Monday October 5 - 2:30-4 pm
(either in person or via digital platform)
Read the book! It is a hard read - and I hope that some of the themes might make you very uncomfortable. (what's a theme? we'll learn about that in book club!)
1. make a reading schedule so you stay on track and don't get behind. Its hard enough to read but harder yet when you have to read 1/2 of it in a week!
2. Its ok to read some chapter summary online if you're having trouble understanding the language or what is giong on. I recommend Schmoop.
3. Make some notes as you read! Look for these things:
*places where people pretend to be someone they're not
*twins or "2 peas in a pod!"
*ask yourself... Is this person they way they ar because of race/family or because of how they were raised?
