This week we had a fantastic discussion regarding the first chapter of The Great Gatsby. The Grade 8 students are diving into annotation and developing a system that meets their needs/learning style.
Students will need to complete and annotate Ch. 2 by Monday (5/4). We will continue to focus on characterization this week. Students should be adding to their character chart as they read. Additionally, students should be recording and defining unfamiliar vocabulary terms as they read.
The annotation key, characterization chart, and vocabulary term graphic organizer can all be located here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qYwZNcLIV325tYfZMHZIWI1HoQswf7oB4QlQm3hscLE/edit
