We've officially begin Sandra Cisnero's novel The House on Mango Street, a short read made up of a series of vignettes about various themes, topics, and characters, and so far it promises to be a meaningful first whole class text. There's lots of positive buzz and smart thinking, and you guys are doing a GREAT job talking about the "meaningful cow" in these little short, short stories.
For tonight's homework, you are to read the following stories:
Boys & Girls
Cathy Queen of Cats
Our Good Day
