2D 2014: A (Very Slight) Change in Plans

Ladies and gents,

Yes, we have another visitor today. Yes, he is visiting because you are awesome.

You will work on your third activity, with one small change; I’d like you to consider integrating the tablets into today’s work. Looking for some possibilities? Consider one of the following options:

  • Fault in Our Stars readers might want to check out the video options on the Literature Circles handout
  • Students reading A Long Way Gone could examine the current state of Sierra Leone (I’d stick with major news organizations for this one; the http://www.theguardian.com/uk is good place to start. Be aware that some content on other sites will be disturbing)
  • Those reading To Kill a Mockingbird can look into a key event in the  history of Civil Rights in the United States. Options include the Jim Crow laws, Emmett Till, or Brown vs. Board of Education (warning: many of the stories you will encounter deal with serious subject matter).
