Language Objective: I will make inferences about characters in Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales.
1.) Read The Book Thief for 15 minutes.
2.) After reading, answer the following questions:
- Summarize the main idea of your reading in one complete sentence.
- List two details that stood out to you in your reading. Cite textual evidence and use complete sentences.
- Make a connection. Compare how something in the text similar to something in your own experience or something you read or watched.
- Contrast how something in the text is different than something in your own experience or something you read or watched.

8.) We will fill out the Character Chart for The Cook together. You will need to use inference skills and back up your inference skills with textual evidence.
