I can determine two or more themes or central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to develop my own ideas around the two themes to determine my own beliefs (RL 2).
As you come into class, prepare for a round of Blooket to study words from lists 5 & 6 for our quiz at the end of the week.
After our game, please spend some time viewing the images posted around the room. Stop at one to create imaginative answers to the following questions and be prepared to share:
What has caused this post-apocalyptic version of the world?
What will survivors try to do to rebuild and change the world?
After this activity, please grab a packet from the front table and take out your copy of Station Eleven.
What’s Going On:
Today we will continue reading Station Eleven together. As we read, you will have guided reading questions to help you keep track of the plot and the characters. Remember: my expectation is that you do not have your phone out at any point during our reading; read along with your copy of the book or work on provided coloring pages on days we are listening if this helps you to focus.
After reading, we will revisit our big ideas and a selection of quotes to make connections to today’s reading.
Work with the class to brainstorm important events from today’s reading to plot on our timeline.
