We Began reading "China's Son"

Everyone was assigned partners and a chapter to read and analyze. With their partner students will answer questions, make an online illustration, and analyze their chapter in order to inform the rest of the class. Prior to starting the novel we looked at important topics that would come up in the book including Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism.
