**honors only** "The Contents of a Dead Man's Pockets" analysis due 3/7
Today for review, students completed a pairing activity. They matched one word from unit 1-3 to another word from unit 1-3. I asked for a total of 10 pairs.
We wrapped up this week's writing instruction with a discussion of prewriting and by viewing examples. Students then complete the activity on p 59- writing to determine a topic. Students chose a prewriting method and used it to help them identify and narrow a topic.
Warm up #6 was a lead in to our last short story. Students worked in pairs to identify unfamiliar words from the story and address a prompt. I then collected the warm ups we have completed since the first week including #1-6.
"The Monkey's Paw"- classes began reading the story while listening along to an audio version. I have posted links to both the story and the audio on the literature page of this site. We will finish reading tomorrow, and students will turn in their reader response journals for all of the stories.
