Friday 9/30/16

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.

Your homework:

* 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.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
