After going over the details of Poem #1 again (A2, B6), students completed one pre-writing exercise from the Burroway text at the start of class, and then students spent 15–20 minutes extending one to two exercises from the previous three weeks in their journals. Then they reviewed yesterday’s reading about abstractions, generalizations, and judgments, and then read more in Burroway about concrete, specific details — and more importantly, the intersection of the two groups. Students then completed the “More Imagery in Chosen Poems” assignment in Google Classroom. Most finished this, though it’s not due until 11:59 tonight. Anyone who did finish early began work on Poem 1 in Classroom. Homework: finish the “More Imagery” assignment; continue thinking about Poem #1.
