I was very disappointed with the lack of use of the close reading strategies in both the Regulars and Honors classes. It shows me that no one was paying attention to their reading or cared enough to properly read the text.

Dig deeper into the texts to find meanings and connections especially my honors students! Honors and Regulars should reread chapter 2 of their respective books.
