There aren't many things that could take me away from you. Having a baby is one of them. Watching that baby almost die is another. The past two days have been terrifying, but Henry is hanging in there. We will be at Children's Hospital for at least few more days. I will keep you posted.
In the meantime, please keep working hard and being respectful of the substitute and of each other. E-mail me if you need help or have questions.
1. Warm-up: Perusing each other's bookmarks, musical chairs style (you may need to explain to the substitute teacher what this is). Take your composition notebook with you as you and write your reactions and comments to each other's bookmarks in your composition notebooks. Do this for a couple rounds, then TRADE BOOKMARKS WITH EACH OTHER.
If the substitute has other plans for you for the first part of class, that's fine, too. Just be sure to trade bookmarks before you leave class today.
2. Socratic seminar: Please make sure you have a scribe today.
1. Continue following the Invisible Man reading schedule, annotating and adding to your new bookmark as you go.
2. Continue working on your poetry project/paper. Please e-mail me with question, and I will give you feedback on your metacognitive writing over the break.
