To start things off we went through the 15 words of SAT 2 (on page 25). The words are impotent,
antithesis, maelstrom, emendation, chagrin, bauble, diaphanous, labyrinth, gloat, impediment, bestial,
effete, shard, bland, and nihilism. The test over the SAT 2 words is on Friday. The homework for today
is to read either the short story Interlopers or the short story Open Window by Saki, annotate it, and ask
three higher-level questions about the text. Be sure to think about the question for the semester: "How
can literature be a motivator for social change?". Also, you need to do the SAT 2 exercises (due
Friday). In class, we worked the background for the author Saki. We also worked on reading and
annotating the short stories. If we finished with that, we got to work on the SAT 2 exercises.
