Thursday, 3/5; Friday, 3/6

We continued with a second professional model of a nonfiction essay today — “The Knife.” Students read and then completed a similar assignment to the one from yesterday on Google Classroom. After finishing, we discussed theme, tone, voice, and setting in both essays. Homework: complete Try This 7.7 from p. 245 in the Burroway text (Interview someone at least a generation older than you are about an event that took place before you were born; write the story and scene of your interview, rather than just giving me a back-and-forth dialogue, and let the event emerge through the conversation and your reflections on it).
