Congratulations on finishing A Raisin in the Sun! I’m very excited to see how everyone did on their final exam today. From the looks of it, there was some high level thinking going on! Good job!
Today was also important because of our visit with our KIPP cousins from Lynn, MA. Although I am putting this blog up before we meet our visitors, I’m going to allow you to write about that visit on the blog tonight if you’d like to do so. 🙂 Please follow the Criteria for Success after you’ve read for 35 minutes.
CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS
1. Username. Title of book. Author of book.
2. Your 2 favorite notes from tonight’s reading in your independent reading book. Make sure that these notes prove that you read and understood your book. If they don’t, don’t be surprised if you end up with an incomplete homework.
After you’ve completed 1 and 2, choose either A or B for part 3:
a. Tell me about someone you met from KIPP Lynn. What did you learn about them today? Did you ask what kinds of books they like to read? Did you find out anything about the books they read with their teachers there? Tell me anything you remember about them.
b. Tell me about your protagonist. Describe his/her inside and outside traits. What are his/her major worries? What does he/she like to do? What kind of person is this protagonist? Explain in detail.
Thanks for all of your hard work!
Happy reading and happy blogging!
