Things are moving right along with our current project, Memoir of a Student. We’re reading I Am Malala and keeping a book journal on our reading. I’ve asked students to complete book journals during class time with their groups. So, please don’t begin new entries, but students are welcome to complete past entries that were not completed in class.
We’ve completed the second book journal entry today in class. We, also, completed our first Literature Circle yesterday in class.
Students have been assigned reading through chapter 10 by Monday and we’ll complete another Lit. Circle Prep Sheet on chapter 10 in class in class. Students will complete their second Literature Circle discussion on Wednesday, Feb. 6. This first checkpoint, Book Journal, will be completed the following week. While this first checkpoint takes a few weeks, the remaining checkpoints will go relatively quickly.
