INFO FOR THE FUTURE:
We will continue to have one vocabulary word per chapter throughout the novel. You will follow a similar routine for each class period (unless otherwise noted). Expect 3 vocabulary words per class period.
There will be bell-ringer questions, vocabulary quizzes, and comprehension quizzes/activities along the way as we read. These are not large tests that require long amounts of studying, but rather short checkpoints to see how you are understanding things as we go. Some will be announced while others may not. Example types of questions may include the following:
Given TRUE/FALSE statements about the book, fix the false statements to make them true (by changing a few words).
Given a sentence with one word missing, select the most appropriate word (mutiple choice/word box).
Identify the setting of a particular chapter.
Describe a change occuring with a particular character based on your reading so far.
Describe the conflict is a particular character facing.
Idenitfy the TYPE of conflict (man vs. man, man vs. self, man vs. nature, man vs. society)
Describe how a character attempting to solve the conflict.
Identify obstacles to solving the conflict.
Given a phrase or sentence, identify the type of figurative language being used.
Given a sentence or two, explain the meaning of the figurative language being used.
Identify/provide examples of foreshadowing, imagery, flashbacks, that can be found in a particular chapter or passage.
These are just a few examples.
