Session 10 Homework
Taking the Leap, continued pg. 95
Readers, for homework, continue last night’s assignment. Keep reading your book club novel. Keep jotting answers to these questions: “What are the problems that the main character is facing?” Where in the story is the main character facing that problem?
After you locate passages where the main character is facing a big problem, reread them, mulling over the author’s decisions. Think about these questions: “Why does the author have the character doing…?” “What do I notice about this passage…what stands out?” “How does this connect with earlier parts of the text?” “What message might the author be trying to communicate?” “What lesson about life is the author trying to teach?”
Writing- the rough draft of your play is due tomorrow
- must be approximately 5-10 minutes long
- must be a personal narrative
- must be have multiple characters
We will ‘act’ these out in class tomorrow to see which areas we need to work on and improve the most. I’m curious to see what the kids come up with – some of what I’ve seen thus far sounds quite interesting! 🙂
Math– make any corrections to today’s “Test”
I went over the first few problems w/ the class and so for tomorrow, just make sure that you have everything completed to the best of your ability (TRY the word problems, if you leave it completely blank I’ll assume that you didn’t make an effort! :-\
We will make any corrections tomorrow…this is not going into the gradebook, I just wanted to see which areas we need to focus on most. Thanks!
