During literature class, we read Ray Bradbury's short story, "All Summer in a Day." Students discussed how to make valid predictions and then did so as they read the story. Many astutely pointed out the connection between the protagonist in The Outsiders and the one in the short story. We also finished Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 of The Outsiders. Chapter 4 is considered the turning point of the novel, and students recorded passages that they felt were significant. For each one, they needed to provide evidence of their thinking.
Advising class was dedicated to Dodec presentations. This community building activity was a great opportunity to learn a little more about each other and to practice our speaking and listening skills. Click on the picture below to see more pictures from the presentations.
