  • I did book chats with people who were ready for them.

  • People got on to the student volume and looked at other electronic portfolios there.

Peer Conference

  • I explained the checklist for the Prompt Word Poem Trade-and-Grade, and then we drew names for partners, then traded and graded!
Collaborative Writing
  • Dialogue Stories--I explained how to do this, using page 37 as a bit of an example, and people got their partners and started typing.  We saved on the Student Volume.  We will finish these tomorrow!

  • We wrote for ten minutes on Freedom and Entrapment (p. 16; #2).

Small Learning Group (pages 3-30 of Mango)

  • I explained items on the agenda:  style discussion (p. 12); character discussion (p. 6); motifs discussion (p. 7)
  • We had about ten minutes in groups, and then we had fifteen minutes with the whole-class discussion following.
Reading Quiz
  • We took the quiz over pages 3-30 of Mango.
Independent Reading
We used the rest of our time to do the following:

  • continue keeping track of characters.
  • do the study guide in your head.
  • Do anything listed under "Independent Reading" that you did not finish during class.
