- We watched a book trailer of the book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and had a book pass.
- We created internal monologues for the first two people in these slides (Entry #4). We discussed how our tones changed depending upon the "character." This is something to keep in mind as you craft your own narrative. In addition, it may be helpful to bring in a photo or trinket to help you draft your narrative.
- We continued to practice punctuating dialogue, creating our own original sentences.
- We discussed what it means to read like a writer and read "Poor Form," "The Waltz," and "Indian Education" to determine writing "moves" to use.
- Bring a book to read! We will start dedicating a portion of our day to reading. You may borrow one from me.
- We will be drafting our narratives in class tomorrow. Be thinking about which moment you would like to write about. Your DRAFT will be due in class on Thursday.
- Read (like a writer) "On Fire," "Rats," and one of your favorite student examples. Mark it up, noting moves you can steal.
- Practice your punctuation. You will have your first quiz on Thursday. It will look like this.
