Talking About Books: November 20, 2015

Focus: What are the qualities of a strong speech?

1. Warming up with an explanation of your exit tickets
  • Each of you has an index card. On your index card, please number 1 through 10.
  • By each number, write down the name of the person presenting.
  • Write down one piece of positive feedback for this person's speech OR one takeaway you have from this person's speech.
  • Turn this in at the end of class. It will be worth 10 points in the Growth category. This is an assessment of your listening skills.
2. Enjoying our final round of book talks!

1. Your next A Long Way Gone reading assignment is due Tuesday, Dec 1: Chapters 9 and 10 (29 pages--it's the long one, so divide the reading up in a way that works for you).

2. BIG annotation/journals conferences will be happening next Monday and Wednesday. I will be looking for at the following reading assignments:

Chapters 1 and 2
Chapters 3, 4, and 5
Chapters 6, 7, and 8

Wednesday: Add Chapters 9 and 10

3. Good food, good friends, good times. Enjoy Thanksgiving.
