Classwork and Homework

Hi there,
What a rainy dull day, but happy inside this school...
Today we started a new unit called, "Writing Realistic Fiction." I did say that we are going to branch out and let you write realistic fiction, historical fiction or science fiction.  This is very exciting.

Today we talked first then read a short story called, "What Are You Anyway?" I talked about the terminology, the words, the era that story was written before we began the story. As I read the story you annotated it thinking about the characters, setting, plot, conflict, theme and symbols.

Next, I paired you up with a peer and your discussed your annotations with each other.

Lastly, I handed out questions.  With your partner you were to complete two questions. If you did not finish it was to become homework.
You were also to do #8 on your own which is filling in the story arc/plot line.
Copy and paste the link to your browser to see the questions:

HOMEWORK: 1. You are to be reading out of realistic fiction, science fiction or historical fiction book. Record the title, minutes and page numbers.

2. Complete your two questions that you and your partner worked on today.

3. Complete the story arc/plot line on the back of the questions paper. It is #8.

Have a great evening,
Mrs. Downs
