Book trailers & Indie read. Preview & intro of new assignments: student-led book talks*, quotable mentions (see page tab above), & blog comment by smileys for blogpost #2.
*Book talk signups on calendar at the front of the room.
Reminder: Have you been completing quickwrite extras in your notebook? Oct. 8, Oct. 15, & Oct. 22 since they were last collected. Be sure to write something substantial, not just a sentence or two about what you did that day (it’s not a diary/journal). If you want, use the 100 days slide deck, or Pinterest something, or use cartoons or memes to spark new ideas. Quotes from your reading can be inspirational, and so can lyrics from your favorite songs. Play with genre. Be original.
2nd hour – Jostens meeting (please read the details above)
Upcoming: A focus on revision and how to revise. (No new paper this week.)
