January 21: History and Reading Guide

  1. Free reading!
  2. Motivation: Students discussed what the character in their independent reading book most wants. We then discussed what different main characters in Raisin are motivated by.
  3. Students began filling out this awesome reading guide: Raisin Family Tree/Raisin summary. We worked through the timeline section in groups and then as a whole class.
  4. We summarized Act 1, scene 1 on the reading guide and then began watching scene 2 from a film version.

HW: Read your own book!
