Today we were supposed to have a reading day, but it occurred to me that we need some practice on close reading. So we did a Close Reading Activity (re: ASP Ch 4-5) together in class.
Your job for Monday is to read Chapters 6 & 7.
In your journal, you have two choices:
- If the question writing/answering is working for you, go for it. Write three questions, answer one.
- If it’s not working for you, try this instead: read as if you’re looking for passages you could do a close reading on. Whenever you find one, flag it. Then, in your journal entry, perform a close reading/analysis 1-2 of the passages you flagged.
