LA - Today we read chapter 1 of The Outsiders.
Students also began a character map, which will be a work in progress throughout the novel. In their visual journals, students put the title of the novel in the centre of the web. Anytime a new character appears in the story, they are added to the web and underlined. As additional info about that character comes up throughout the novel, students should be adding it to their web. Webs will be checked periodically, and at the end of the novel.
Reminder: Homework check for Outsiders Journal Entry #1: Anticipatory Response will be on Tuesday, November 13th.

Tomorrow we will be starting a persuasive writing assignment about ourselves and Humanism.
