November 4

IRT: ~20 minutes
WNB: Vocab entry - As they read their choice books, students identified interesting or unfamiliar words then selected 4 words to define in their notebooks.

Students chose one of their plans to turn into a full short answer response. This took up most of our time! We'll pick up where we left off on Monday.

Also on Monday, we will go over the answers to the multiple choice handouts and discuss the 3 essays (Fear, Boys, Compact). Don't forget to write 5 questions/ah-ha moments based on the essays.
