5 Classes Left

  1. 1. 3 Projects<br />We have 5 class periods remaining in this nine week grading period!<br />
  2. 2. Book Review<br />Check out 2 sample reviews:<br />here (scroll down to review written by Ryan) and here (scroll to the review of Feed titled, Satire may soar over the heads of young readers).<br />Project 1<br />On a book you’ve read this nine weeks—not the same one you did the book talk on.<br />Begins with a compelling introduction—a HOOK and thesis sentence that gives your opinion of the book.<br />Includes a summary with enough details that show you read the book but that doesn’t include spoilers.<br />Ends with a final opinion about the book.<br />
  3. 3. Narrative Essay<br />We’ve worked on the prewriting in your Writer’s Notebook when we brainstormed places, then memories, then did quick writes about those memories.<br />Project 2<br />Shares three specific memories tied to ONE PLACE.<br />Draft the three separate memories.<br />Start in medias res (in the middle of the action)<br />SHOW us that moment—in present tense as if it’s happening now.<br />Include sensory details (sights, sounds, smells…)<br />Use vivid words<br />
  4. 4. Independent Reading<br />Remember: You’re supposed to have read SIX BOOKS —the equivalence of six books, according to our formula.<br />Project 3<br />READ.<br /> READ. <br />READ!<br />
