We move into the analysis phase of our study of The Book Thief.
You can usually expect a videoconference online at the time we would usually have English each period (You’ll see Thursday is an independent day for you this week) – and all the relevant information and materials you’ll need will be posted here on the class blog (as always!). Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or are having challenges getting to class.
