Gathering Essay Evidence

Goal: Getting read to write an essay about the theme in our group novels.

Group work on theme organizer

Theme Essay Organizer:

  • I am giving you this organizer on paper.
  • You need to bring this paper back to class on THURSDAY if you want to use it to help you write your novel essay.
  • I am also giving you access to an electronic copy of this doc. Click HERE
  • You can do the work on paper, or work on it digitally. If you choose the digital option YOU are responsible for bringing a printed copy to class on Thursday.

Test Tomorrow:

  • Tomorrow you have a unit test. You will have a short story to read and answer questions about.
  • The questions should let you show that you understand characterization, conflict (internal and external), word choice, setting, and theme. (We've practiced things like this. You should be fine.)
