We finished discussing "Arachne" and students will have a test on the story tomorrow. See previous post for the a copy of the story.
Homework: Students need answer the question, What is symbolism? on page 11 in their notebooks. They must also write about their most memorable birthday whether it is really good or really bad.
Students received a new reading log today. They must be reading every night, writing a summary and getting a signature.
Students will take the test and then we will begin a new story called "Eleven."
We will finish reading "Eleven" and answer questions 2 & 3 on page 12 in their notebooks. We will continue to discuss Characterization, Plot, Theme, Point of View and Symbolism.
Students are finishing plot, conflict and point of view. Friday they will focus on figurative language, theme and sensory language.
