Section 3. As discussed in your lit circle groups, we encountered the initiating incident in Section 2, when Saul gets sent to residential school. How will he survive this? “I could never understand how the god they proclaimed was watching over us could turn his head away and ignore such cruelty and suffering.” (p. 52)
Reading Section 3: For this next section, read Ch.13-19 (including 19). The chapters are short and sweet in this book, but contain so much. Chap 13 is significant as it signifies all he has lost, I know some of you read it with the last section, but should be read again in the context of this section, which has some hope discovered in the form of turds.
Rotate the roles, make sure you understand what to do before you read. I am overall very impressed with the quality and content of all of your work, thank you for posting on the shared document.
If you finish reading early, please go to No Red Ink to finish up past units. If you are amazing at grammar, please be reading. I have been collecting some excellent pdf versions that I will share.

This week’s literary focus is….Characterization! How do we come to understand a character in a story? We have spent quite a bit of focus on this so far, so I will let you add the description to your literary elements reading log.
I am not getting you to write a character sketch, but please fill out this chart as you go through the reading.
