A Period 9th Grade Homework Due Thursday 2/9

1. What we covered this class…

-Expectations and procedures for class discussions (handout).

-Discussion questions for next class to consider: What’s in a name? How do appearances matter (think clothing and bodies)? Does the online map help or hinder the overcoming of stereotypes and the effects of redlining? How is Esperanza a wise narrator for her age, much like Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird?

-Here is a link to the map: http://projects.nytimes.com/census/2010/explorer
