K.I.S.S. Post – April 15, 2010

This is the WRONG KISS -- a band from the 70s and 80s. Gross.

Hi KIPPsters!

You all have been working so hard on test prep this week, that tonight, let’s just K.I.S.S! Yup, that’s right, let’s KISS! Ew, gross, not that kind of KISS — KISS: Keep It Simple, Silly! After you read for 35 minutes, please just KISS by following the:

CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS

1. Username. Title. Author.

2. Tonight I read _____ pages.

3. Create 3 Thick Questions. Please focus your questions on: Critiquing the Author’s Intentions, Critiquing the Author’s Style of Writing, Evaluating the Language, Digging Deeper to Uncover Greater Meaning or Evaluating Social Issues and Themes.

Pretty easy, right? Aren’t you glad we KISSed? 🙂 

Love,

Stabookski

  4. Angeline2015: Streams to the river, River to the sea by: Scott O’ Dell. Tonight, I read 20 pages.
    1). Wouldn’t the ring and the venom of the snake choke or kill Sacagawea?
    2). Why did the group of men let Sacagawea jump to try to catch all the things leaving off the boat, instead of them doing it their self?
    3). Why every time Sacagawea talks, Charbonneau says ” Crazy talk, crazy Shoshone talk?”
    One theme in this book is that even though you might not get what you want you should still show gratitude. In the book, right now Sacagawea likes Clark but she has to stay with her husband Charbonneau. Sacagawea didn’t want to marry Charbonneau, but she didn’t really have a choice.

  5. markos2015- i read 20 pages of Dope Sick by Walter Dean Myers and 3 thick questions that i have are
    1.why does lil j think he was the one that got his friends to this mess?
    2.what happened if the book started as “hi my name is… and my friends are…”

  6. My user name is jasonb2015. I am currently reading “Go Ask Alice” by an anonymous author. Tonight, I read 21 pages.

    1).What gave the anonymous author the bravery to write about her private life and share it to the entire world?
    2).As the own author of her diary, what encouraged her to get into drugs and make incorrect decisions?
    3).Through her diary, did she want to teach an important lesson such as following the right path and not getting into drugs?

    One of the major themes in my novel seems to not get badly influenced by your friends and making the choices that you feel is right. One’s heart is stronger than the words that come through your friends’ mouth and you should listen to your heart as it talks to you.

  7. lourdes2015: I am currently reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I read 25 pages.
    1) How has their father’s heart attacks bring the family back together?

    3) Why did the author choose to have Susie be the narrator since she was killed off from the beginning?

  8. I am reading the Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan. I read 61 pages tonight (The book is that good). Is Annabeth’s disappearance bringing her and Percy closer together? Why doesn’t Ares behead Percy now or is it because he will fight back or because Poseidon will get angry and throw him into Tarturus? So, is Artemis delusional because she started the entire quest just for Percy to realize that he was in love with Annabeth?

  15. suni2417- In tonight reading i read 25 pages in the book Streams in the River River to Sea ,by:Scott O’dell. Why did the author wanted to write about the history of lewis and clark, what inspire him to write about them. Also I think that the author way of writing is very creative , because he wan’t to make it in the point of view of sacagawea. One of the theme and issues in the story is that even though you are not with your family you should always try suscceding on your dreams. One of the theme in the story is to never let your love one leave you behind.
