12 October: TFA Achebe Interviews

Objective:

I can also use author interviews to make connections to a piece of literature and the world as a whole (SL 1 & RL/RI 3).


Entry Task:

As you come into class prepare to play a round of Blooket to practice our unit vocabulary.


What’s Going On:

Now that we have finished our novel, we will have a full class discussion focusing on Achebe’s views as an author and how the novel connects to the world. Use your sheet to make note of your individual responses to the questions as we move through the presentation, and be prepared to share.


Exit Task:

Spend time writing out your response to the final question with thoughtful details. Tomorrow we will move on to exploring theme statements for the novel.
