As we proceed with the fiction unit, I am going to have you do a series of practices. I decided to do a mixture of personal reflections and responses (as a way to engage our text-to-self abilities), close reading of the stories we read and connections between those stories (to engage our text-to-text abilities), and finally applying the content we learned with our own personal research (to engage our text-to-the-world abilities). There will be a total of 5-practices and a discussion portion to this assignment. Please follow along to understand my full instructions:
Complete the 5-practices indicated in my tutorial. I am also including the slideshow I used in my video to make it easier for you to complete each practice. Each practice has a different purpose (i.e. reflection, close reading, textual connections, etc.) so make sure you are paying attention to the full instructions. For Practice #5, you will need to download and use the character analysis chart included.
