We will be wrapping up our introduction to fiction this week by moving through fiction stations Monday and Tuesday, and then participating in a science fiction simulation experience while reading the short story, “The Fun They Had” on Wednesday. To conclude the intro to fiction, there will be a fiction terms/comprehension quiz on Friday. Here is a link to a quizlet, an excellent study tool for becoming familiar with the vocabulary.
Thursday will be dedicated to debriefing the Chapter 14 writing assignment from Seedfolks. We will spend the class period reflecting on the rubric and making some final revisions. On Thursday, students may complete final revisions based on my comments and the rubric for extra points on the writing grade. Students, please wait until Thursday during class to begin this process. I will give very specific instructions for doing this. I have absolutely LOVED reading your chapters. Your creativity and writing has blown me away! I can’t wait to share them all with you!
Please let me know if you have any questions about the week. Have a great one!
