Since so much of the vocabulary in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is related to Southern dialect, we will be focusing on mini-grammar lessons instead. Expect to master the following by the end of this unit:
Ø Pronoun- Antecedent Agreement
Ø Comma Splices (and how to fix them)
Ø Parallel Structure
In addition, I am providing you with a vocabulary sheet to help you with dialect as we read.
