After reviewing “Souvenir” and students‘ answers on their homework, I had everyone fill out a new power paragraph outline, this time for Eddie‘s motivation, Bane’s motivation, or Eddie’s changes as a character. We walked through all the steps of the outline, including Introduce, Explain, Pertain, and after students finished with the outline they wrote out the paragraph in its entirety. Students turned in all three items — paragraph, outline, and handout from last Thursday — before they left. At the very end of class, we started our study of Theme by reading a Dr. Seuss story. Homework: finish your power paragraph if you didn’t get it done in class; due at the start of class on Wednesday.
