We introduced our novel.
2. Chapitre 1
We read Chapter 1 together. We looked at a map of Mauritania and discussed the various features of the country and the people discussed in Chapter 1. This chapter focuses on introducing the setting including the land, the people,and their general way of life, but doesn't give much information about our main character Fama.
3. Chapitre 2
We began Chapter 2, reading in groups of 3. Each group is to use the information on the first 1.5 pages of Ch. 2 to create a family portrait/family tree for Fama. The images of the people should reflect the descriptions of the people and their clothing from Chapter 1 and 2.
