Busy day today! We had so much to get through: starting our first story, "A Sound of Thunder," practicing annotations, learning about the "quote sandwich," and hearing from representatives from the student literary magazine, Vertigo.
For those of you who would like to review the "Quote Sandwich" information (or for my seventh period students who had the privilege of experiencing the glorious fire drill...), you can check out the powerpoint here.
Homework for tonight (not for period five):
1) Finish reading "A Sound of Thunder".
2) Write a "quote sandwich" paragraph, in which you describe the mood at the end of the story, and use one quote from the story.
3) Write two discussion questions that we can use for our whole-class discussion of the story tomorrow. Think about what you'd ask the class if you were the teacher!
Homework for tonight (for period five):
Make a plot chart using details from what we read today.
