Unfortunately I cannot be there today, but you have a great TOC who will help you with your discussions and your writing.
Remember- you are to have read half the book by Thurs/Fri.
9-10pm- Writing Analysis – note: read TWO essays and begin analyzing today. Continue analyzing in class with me on Th/Fr. It is not due until the weekend so no panic to be done today.
Literary Discussion and Lens paragraph
Discuss the following questions:
- Plot and Style: What has happened so far and what is your impression of the writing?
- Discuss the main traits and actions of the protagonist. How do the decisions and actions of characters reveal their personalities? Give evidence.
- What or who is influencing their beliefs and values at this point in the novel? Do you think this is a healthy way to form your beliefs and values as a young adult? Give evidence from the novel and your own life.
- Lens: each person is to go over 1-2 questions from their lens’ perspective before forging ahead to write their paragraph. Learn from others!!!
- Everyone in your group now has to choose a NEW lens in which to analyze the next 6th of the book. YOu will discuss this lens on Thurs/Fri and write a NEW paragraph then.
When you are done, you are to work on your lens paragraph. Please read the example I give about the movie Grease. It is due 24 hours after your class.
