I sent everyone a document with a newspaper article and some tasks dealing with Lorca’s earthquake. We shall be doing them together. This post is to remind you that tomorrow you must bring the document to class. Print it and include it in your notebook. So far, I have not received any comments, so I wonder whether you’ve opened your mail. Anyway, see you tomorrow and remember that the dead line for the first five chapters of The Phantom of the Opera is tomorrow too.
By the way, nobody has found the hidden link between David Lozano and Ladyghost. The first one to find out will get an extra mark.
