Mastering Short Answer Responses

Goal: Learning about expectations for short answer questions and taking a quiz on the first 1/4 of your group novel.

It might be a good idea to read or re-read the chapter(s) right before the first 1/4 of your group novel.

Memoir Presentations:
Several people are presenting today.

Expectations for short answer responses:
Often teachers will ask you to write short written responses. Short answers are just as important as long answers and most teachers have high expectations for your answers.
We will review these expectations in class.

Quick write:

  1. Open your English Journal and add a new entry at the top. 
  2. Answer the question below. 

What do you know about the main character in your group novel so far? Include at least one thing that is directly stated and one thing that you think based on what you read. 

Keeping in mind what you know about expectations for short answer responses show us your best work on this QUIZ about your group novel. (The quiz has an entry code. I will give it to you in class.)

Period 2 Friday 9th Assembly. Go straight to the big gym and find Mrs. R to check in. (Did you give your adult that lavender paper?)
Keep up with work in your English Journal.
Keep reading your group novel, unless you are already 1/2 way done, then read another book.)
