Today we continued watching the documentary about the high school Poetry Slam competition in Chicago. You should have turned in your notes and reflection sheet at the end of class.
* Spend time reflecting (thinking about) the documentary: What poems or stories stand out to you? Which one will you remember in a couple weeks or months? Why do you think that is? If you were to write a poem about your life, what would you write about? Why was it powerful for those teens to share their stories?
* Read a minimum of 40 pages in your choice book--OR--if you turned in your Reading Record on Friday and got it back from me, look at the note I wrote you and decide what you think is a *good* daily reading goal (pages per day) for you. Then read that many pages.
