This week we continued with the short story by O Henry – The Gift Of The Magi. We discussed the literary devices, Ã‚Â narrative technique, tone and the Biblical allusions used by the writer in the story. The students enjoyed the ‘O Henry twist’ in the story. In the coming week students will start with analytical question answers.
We also started with unit – 8 in the workbook explaining the students the concepts of semi-colons. In the coming week they will be taught about the usage of colons too and practice exercises will be given on the same topic.
On 20th July they have their first language unit test. All the best to all the students.
