Tuesday – a reading day for Part I. Tweets (see post from Friday) due by 3:15.
Wednesday – first hour did their concept mapping, seventh hour did their discussion. Tomorrow we’ll flip-flop.
A couple of Journal Interview Notes.
- Remember to use the skills we’ve discussed. If you need to, take a snap shot of the board with the skills on it. That’s an easy way to figure out which is which!

“Reading with the spine” (Nabokov)
