We listened to "Be Cool to the Pizza Dude," an essay from the "This I Believe" radio show that inspired yesterday's notebook entry. I wanted students to see what their thoughts could become!
I introduced the book blogging procedure that students will follow to write about their choice reading. Information is posted on Classroom. Students had time to work on their next blog entry, which is due by Sunday, 9/18. We will have class time on Thursday to work on this entry.
With the remaining class time, students worked in their groups on the THROWDOWN activity. We should wrap this up on Monday.
