1. Make a list of your top three choices of world lit books for WLA 2.
2. Reread "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." You will need to be informed about your group's decisions about how the poem is divided up.
3. Write your three interpretive questions from your assigned section of "Tradition and the Individual Talent."
4. Think and work on revising your WLA 1 (no grade or checkup on this).
I will take your choices and try to get books into your hands as quickly as possible. Then we will discuss "Tradition." For the last 20 minutes, we will work in groups for "Prufrock."

Also, take note of the deadline. If there is a problem, speak to it NOW!

Have a happy late start day. Here is the link to the website for Andrew Allen.

I recommend Flight, The Thomas Beale Cipher, and The Emperor of Ice Cream. Most of the rest is commercial in nature.

Read "Tradition and the Individual Talent" for Thursday/Friday. Those who have not finished feedback, finish that up.

Oral commentaries are Monday and Tuesday, following a long IB tradition of moving back deadlines and running out of time. When I first moved the deadlines on the calendar (and I can hardly stand to look at a calendar), I did not consider election day. Sorry for the nerves.
