Tuesday, 9/26 (A3); Wednesday, 9/27 (B6)

After missing a week of school for a death in my family, I returned to help students back into the book Hole in My Life. I gave everyone some reading time at the start of class, and then I split the class into 10 groups. Each group spent the bulk of class researching one of Gantos’s literary allusions from Part 1 of his memoir. Before we wrapped for the day, I also had students make a list of events in Part 1 that they found surprising as well as events they found confusing.
