We are now in the process of drafting our snapshot moments. Today we looked at how the author Elie Wiesel slows down time in his writing by using the countdown strategy. We discovered that this strategy would work well in our own writing pieces.
Homework for Friday: Students have been reading during SSR and hopefully at home. On Monday, they were given a reading response assignment, which is to be completed for Friday. It requires the answering of 5 questions in short paragraph-long responses (2-3 sentences). This is to be completed on the book they've been reading during SSR. If they've recently completed a book, they are welcome to do the assignment on that book.
