Writer's Notebook (in class entry): You’ve been kidnapped! Which character from your summer reading would you want to come to your rescue? Be sure to explain your answer! (Also include the title of the book!)

I reminded students that their quote mini-poster is due tomorrow. We have changed the timed writing assignment from Monday to Tuesday: we'll talk more about it on Monday. Students should keep working on the 6-box planning sheet in the meantime.

Students received a copy of a literary terms and techniques packet that will be essential to our class! They then worked in groups to prepare a presentation on an assigned literary term that they will teach to the class on Friday/Monday.
