English 9 — Wed. May 16 and Thu. May 17

Wednesday: We completed our illustrations for “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”.

Thursday: We used our illustrations to better understand the Visual Work Scoring Rubric. We then did dramatic readings of “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” with groups of 3 or 4 taking different sections of the text to perform. We then looked briefly at the Spoken Work Scoring Rubric.

This is all in preparation for the Self-Directed Project which we will complete for the remainder of our “Imagination” unit. Students will complete one written assignment and one non-written assignment. For each, they may choose the style of assignment and the texts they will use for it. (See the Self-Directed Project assignment handout for more details.)

Homework: Consider what choices you’d like to make for the project. This project will take us about two weeks to complete. Also, you MUST bring in your own silent reading material. We will not resume silent reading unless the vast majority of students make the effort to find a book and bring it to class.
