I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
We were able to extend our reading time today to 15-20 minutes to allow students more time reading their Lit Circle book. Groups then identified main characters in these early chapters and assigned certain characters to each group member for analysis (on the chart provided in the packet for the first section of the book). After reading, we completed our final parallelism exercises and then moved back into poetry analysis. Students worked in their groups to observe and analyze details of the poem and to infer the central insight of poems in our Holocaust comparative literature unit.
