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).
