Readers Workshop: 8C
Students today read the short story, The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. As a class, we went over the initial incident and climax so they have an anchor for the rest of their plot outline. They began to create a plot outline for the short story with a partner. Those that didn't complete the task need to finish their plot outlines for Monday February 5th. A reminder for them to use their sample for Cask of Amantillado as a guide.
The students also were shown a model of a Pecha Kucha today which they will need to have completed for their book talk which is due in February. They can begin working on slides as they read their chosen novel.
