What an interesting couple of days! I got to see so many different and challenging texts that students brought in. From short stories to computer programs, from sheet music to Xbox instructions- what a range of readers we have in LitWrit!
In addition to asking students to talk about their texts in groups, I also had them reflect on what their choice of text says about who they are. This deeper reflecting work brought out some intriguing self-descriptions, which I look forward to reading in greater detail at our first notebook check.
We spent the second half of our class these past two days getting oriented in the library. If you'd like to check out the library's website from home, you can click here.
Homework today is to complete the "Teacher's Challenge" questions, which go along with the excerpt I handed out.
