Good Afternoon!

*We will continue to read our novel “Takedown”.

Our new novel:  “Of Mice and Men”.  This will not be a read aloud.  This will be a ‘Novel Study’…so you will have work, assignments and a test.

Chapter 1: 

-Give students a piece of blank paper.  Read aloud Chapter 1

-Students are to listen to the description of the setting and try to picture what the setting of the novel may be like.  They are to draw a rough sketch of what they have imagined. 

-Steinbeck uses different techniques in his writing/descriptions –comparison (simile, metaphor, personification etc) detail, and appealing to the senses. 

*Chapter 1 Questions

Good Morning!

*Friday Writes…but not a write.  Today you will start to go over all your previous writes to ensure they are complete.  In addition, you will be making sure your best composition is a solid piece of writing.

  1.  Peer edit:  someone in the class will be reading through your best composition to give you feedback.

2.  Start to get your portfolio organized and complete the following checklist and reflection.
