We are finishing our novel, Seedfolks, today, and students will be assessed on the novel and the characteristics of fiction this Thursday, August 22. They have all that they need to study in their notebooks:
– character chart
– characteristics of fiction (pages 15-17 in notebook)
– characteristics of fiction chart
I have posted these completed handouts on my wiki in case students need them for reference (www.mrsbarrowsclass.pbworks.com). The completed charts are due before the test on Thursday for a classwork grade.
Students will begin their next writing assignment at the end of the week. They will be writing their own chapter, chapter 14, of Seedfolks. I will be posting the writing assignment explanation on the wiki in the next day or so. Last, we will begin studying the plot diagram using a short story, “Dog of Pompeii”.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
