This week we will continue to read Farewell to Manzanar. We will be reviewing previous chapters and will be looking for recurring themes present in the novel that have significantly affected the author. Students will also research actual court cases that took place during this period in relation to the internment camps. We will also continue practicing paraphrasing/summarizing text and properly citing sources with MLA formatting, which is invaluable for research papers, etc.
