Day Four

When you decide on the quote you want to write about, come get a copy, tape it into your journal, then start writing.

“Do anything, but let it produce joy.” Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Started @ 8:22
Ending about 8:34-ish

We did not pair-share these today; we hung on to them, so we could use them (possibly) to help write our London Quote assignment this weekend.

Reading and Annotating:  “How to Mark a Book”
  • Let’s number the rest of our paragraphs.
  • Starting with paragraph eight, read and annotate for the next fifteen minutes.  

Annotation Directions:
  1. Here’s a paper copy of our current list of annotation possibilities.
  2. Look up words you don’t know, and write their definition next to the word in the text you’re reading.
  3. Wiki any references you’re unfamiliar with, so you have SOME idea what the writer is talking about.
  4. Started @ 8:40; ending at 9:00AM

Pair-Share your annotations with a new partner.
  1. What is DIFFERENT about your marginalia?
  2. What’s similar?
  3. What have we used most from the master list?
  4. What new, creative ways are we annotating?
We discussed responses as a class.
