2016-17 Week 23 — February 13

Happy Sunday, y’all! It’s a great time to be a Knight!

Before I talk about what we’re doing this week in class, I want to make sure that you know that you’re going to need one of the novels from the book list soon. In about a week, the English 11 classes will begin reading The Complete Stories by Flannery O’Connor. AP Lang students will need it in about two weeks. You should have purchased this from MBS when you purchased your other textbooks at the beginning of the year, but if you didn’t, you can probably find a copy in a local bookstore, on Amazon ($12.33 new, as low as $3.44 used), or a site like Half.com (as low as $4 used). Please make arrangements to get this book so that we can move forward with our study of it. Flannery O’Connor was an amazing Southern author with a deep Catholic faith who wrote in the Southern Gothic style. I think you’ll like her–she’s one of my favorites. 🙂
