I collected and checked part 2 of the independent novels today. While I was checking these, students completed a journal reflection at the midpoint of their novels by typing them in a Goode Doc. Then everyone signed up for Google Classroom and completed a second assignment that required a little bit of research into the writing and setting of their novels. Students worked on these for about 30 minutes, and some were able to finish and turn both in attached to the same Classroom assignment before leaving. Then we watched and annotated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, looking particularly for tone. Homework: finish the Classroom assignment if you didn’t get it done in class, due Thursday; read part 3 in your novel, due Monday.
