Classwork and Homework

Mondays are great aren't they?
-Today in class we talked about voice and setting. We talked about what is voice. It is writing that: Sounds like you, shows you care, shows your connection to the book through characters, conflict, setting, plot, and theme, it is worth sharing, it shows your intellect, it is intense, potent, and deep-thinking.
-We then shared with a partner the setting of our reread book. Then I explained what a setting map is and showed three examples. From there you went back to your desk and began to creatively create your setting on two pages of your notebook. As you drew the setting you were to analyze/ deep think about the setting with questions like: How does the time (year, day, season) impact the plot and characters, How does the culture impact the plot and characters, How does the weather impact the plot and characters and Why did the author chose this particular setting.  You were to be looking at your notebook assessment requirements to be sure you included all that is needed.

-Then you went back to your desk to begin creating your setting and deeply analyzing it with your words. This is NOT homework, we will work again tomorrow on this.

HOMEWORK:
1. Read and record title, pages, and minutes.

2. Continue filling in your scavenger hunt paper as you read your reread book.

3. Book MUST be a baggie.

4. Book orders are due this Friday.

Have a great evening,
Mrs. Downs
