Focus: Now that Amir has taken "the red pill," is there a way to be good again? A close look at Chapters 22 and 23 in The Kite Runner
1. Warm-up: Find one phrase or short sentence from Chapter 22 or 23 that illustrates an important moment in Amir's (heroic?) journey. As you listen to your classmates read their phrases aloud, what new picture do we form of Amir? How has he changed, and why?
2. Kite Runner Fishbowl Discussion #7: Chapters 22 and 23 (please post your blog responses underneath today's agenda).
3. Wrap-up: Take-away's from today's discussion
Homework: Read and annotate Chapter 24 of The Kite Runner for tomorrow's discussion. Also, please read the overview of your independent reading project and come in prepared with any questions you have. Lastly, while SAT vocabulary cards are no longer required, I strongly suggest making them for List 6.
