Why am I asking you about this?
We will read a story “The Pearl” by John Steinbeck that
describes people’s life in 1930s.
Look at the book and guess what country is this?
A pearl is a hard, roundish object produced within a living shelled mollusk. Many hundreds of pearl oysters have to be gathered and opened, and thus killed, in order to find even one wild pearl.The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as objects of beauty for many centuries, and because of this, the word ‘pearl’ became a metaphor for something very rare, very fine, very admirable and very valuable.
We first will read 10-12 pages of the book and if you think something important happens to the person fill this profile (thoughts, words, acting). Also find where did it happen? What timeframe?Listening to the audio text of “The Pearl” for 15 minLet’s see what happens. Scorpion stings the baby and he could die. Do you know what scorpion is?
Scorpionsare night predatory animals like spiders. They could be small or giant (from 15mm to 20 cm in length), and are pretty dangerous. The doctor might not help them, why? Too poor.
