Language Objective: I will use context clues to determine the meaning of words and compare and contrast Jon Krakauer's "Death of an Innocent" with his Author's Note in Into the Wild.
1.) Bell Work: read your Quarter 2 book for 15 minutes.
2.) Reading Journal (write for 5 minutes):
What is the main conflict in your book? How does the author make it clear that this is the main conflict (or issue, if you are reading non-fiction) in the book?
Could this main conflict have been introduced differently?
3.) Daily Dose of Grammar:
Choose the correct usage of apostrophes:
- The girls volleyball team has had a great season.
- The girl’s volleyball team has had a great season.
- The girls’ volleyball team has had a great season.
5.) Quick Write (write for 5 minutes):
- In half a page, describe your experiences in the wild. Have you ever spent time outdoors? Have you ever spent time camping or out in a national park? Describe in ½ page any such experience.
- If you have never experienced time in the great outdoors, then write about another person, a TV show, or a movie in which you saw somebody enter such an experience. How did you like the story of their experience in the wilderness? ½ page.
7.) Read and discuss Jon Krakauer's Author's Note to Into the Wild (we will be using your Kindles for this.)
