Wednesday, November 18: Beginning Our Blogs

  1. Students got out their Motif Blog Posts Assignment and (if they didn’t yesterday) completed a freewrite on three of the questions listed under their motif here: TKAM Motifs and Themes for Lit Circles.
  2. Next, student checked their emails! Ms. Neale and Ms. Garvoille invited each student to participate in a group blog via Blogger. Here are the sites:

3. Then, students began working on their blog post assignment #1 which is:

Choose a quote from TKAM that relates to your motif and creates a personal response for you. State what happened (with textual evidence) in the events surrounding the quote, state what was right and wrong with what happened, and what should happen to make the event right. Then relate the event to something that happened in your own life. Honors: to earn a 3.5 or above, compare what happened with one other event from TKAM or in the news.

(this is outlined on the Motif Blog Posts sheet).

Here is Ms. Garvoille’s example!

We will continue working on this tomorrow and Thursday in class!

HW: Read through Chapter 13 for tomorrow.
