Chapter 2/the bunkhouse

M.U.G. shot #3 - see make-up book on return to class. Today our focus was imagery and close reading. I gave students an activity that has two parts dealing with the opening paragraph for ch 2. They started this in class and we'll finish up in class tomorrow. Homework: Complete ch 2 vocab, parts 1 and 2.

Finish bunkhouse drawings

Students had the period (all 35 minutes of it) to finish their drawn depictions of the bunkhouse described in the opening paragraph of ch 2. We will share these as a class tomorrow.

Vocab/ch 2

I reviewed the ch 2 vocab words and told students to cross off profound - it won't be included in the sentence workshop or on the quiz Monday. After explaining the "prewriting" for the character chart, we read, stopping on pg 25. 

Friday 9/7/2018
Vocab workshop/ch 2

After we workshopped the sentences for ch 2, I crossed off complacent from the list. Students should study all words except profound and complacent. QUIZ MONDAY. I reviewed the character map "prewriting," which I will check on Monday after they finish reading ch 2 over the weekend. They will have a quiz matching the characters on Monday so it's important they do the assigned task.

Quizzes!

First students completed M.U.G. shot #4. After that, they had a quiz on Mice and Men vocab, ch 2, and then an open-note quiz on the characters of ch 2. They turned this in with their character chart "prewriting." Finally, they had a writing response and four reading Qs to answer. I projected this on the screen and students either wrote down the questions or took a picture of them. If needed, you can find the questions in the Honors 9 class resources tab.

Ch 2 discussion/begin ch 3

We talked about characters that stood out in ch 2, as well as foreshadowing and characterization questions (assigned yesterday). The last question asked about Slim and the way he is characterized directly and indirectly. Many struggled with this, so I explained it more and they were to go home and rework it tonight as needed. I will collect this activity tomorrow. We started reading ch 3, stopping on pg 53.

Vocab review

I reviewed all the definitions and parts of speech for ch 3 words #1-7 (or 20-26), and students wrote original sentences which we will workshop tomorrow/Friday. VOCAB TEST MONDAY.
