Ms. Johnson started the day by discussing what she expects when she gives students a chance to redeem their marks.
The message is this– Many of you are still in “Jail” and will be asked to try again on several sub-par assignments.
Today we worked on identifying quotes that relate to certain aspects which the IB tend to focus on: Character, Theme, Author’s Style, Reader’s Response, and Context/Conflict. Your task was to find quotes in each of these area, classify them as such, and write a small rationale for your decision of classification. Once a quote was highlighted, it could not be used again for this activity.
Assignment: Finish populating the Google Docs for this project (link). Then– read each of the pages and comment/question on the contributions of your classmates. I should see your participation in this in the sidebar comments.

Continue working on the quote hunt for part two of the text and contribute to the shared study documents.
Assignment: Novel study sheet for “The Stranger”– you should fill this in with your own handwriting. This sheet is intended to be looked at daily for 3-5 minutes. I will check this on Friday.
