Today, first, we tried to sort out the Harry Potter Premiere options. I decided a survey was in our best interest. So here you go: Click here to take survey . I will keep the survey open until THURSDAY.
Then we had our first Socratic Seminar. By and large it went okay. I’ve asked you to read Chapters 4 & 5 for WEDNESDAY (I won’t see you tomorrow because of ITEDs).
Apparently there was some confusion about the journal prompts last time. It was NOT my intention that prompt 1 = Chapter 1, but that all the prompts were to help you address the entire chunk of reading you did. Henceforth, I shall use bullet points instead of numbers!
For Chapters 4 & 5, please reflect on:
- Continue to work with the metaphor of Gene’s time at school as his “war”–think carefully about what war it is that he’s fighting, and continue to look for language that points to that.
- Address the BIG EVENT that happens. Why did it happen? Was it an accident or was it intentional? What evidence do you have for it being intentional? What evidence do you have for it being accidental? Try to be as specific as you can be, including quotes and page numbers. A T-chart on this might even be helpful.
- Continue your work with season and politics and hero’s journey. If you missed the handout on hero’s journey template, please stop by and pick one up ASAP.
Good luck on ITEDs tomorrow!
