Hello 8th Grade Families,

    Today, we started class by going over last the vocabulary homework that was due today. The 8th graders did a good job! Afterwards, we went over the last 5 words from Unit 1. 
    Once we finished vocabulary, we moved onto reading more from The Outsiders. We read from page 29 to the top of pg. 44 (for the students who weren't in school today). The end of chapter 2 and beginning of chapter 3 shed light on different perspectives. We saw some of Cherry's views as a Soc, and we saw Ponyboy express himself. We also learned exactly what happened the night Johnny was beat by the Socs. We were left with a foreshadowing that something was about to occur. 
    We will discuss more tomorrow regarding the use of a sunset as a metaphor. 
    
Best,
Mrs. Baier
