Wednesday, October 13th, 2010


  • We completed the prep sheet for book #2.
  • We rehearsed book #2 two times, with two different partners.
Read and Relax
  • Most people had thirty minutes or so to read.
  • I conferenced with some people who had finished books.
  • We spent the last few minutes talking about the Chilean miners' story, and then we wrote a story (a few sentences), using any of the new vocabulary we could.  Our ticket out the door was this story/paragraph/a few sentences.

  • We viewed the Oedipus Wordles.  Each person spent a minute or so talking about why he/she chose the motif words--people actually ended up re-telling/reviewing a lot of the play, and it was interesting to see what words people prioritized, what fonts they used, what colors, what arrangements....
  • We defined it, and talked a bit about where we've seen it.  The story I assigned--"My Oedipal Complex"--obviously has intertextuality going on with Oedipus Rex--but how?  And why?
Independent Reading Time
  • We had thirty minutes in class to read.  
Writing Conferences
  • I conferenced with Courtney.
  • Finish reading "My Oedipal Complex," and thoughtfully complete the Reading Journal.
