Our Journey As Readers:
- Read Like a Scholar: As you read, keep track of key quotes using a dialectical journal. Notice the cognitive strategies you use and how they help you make sense of what you read.
- Discuss the Text: At the end of each week, participate in a face-to-face / digital backchannel Socratic seminar. Bring your dialectical journal to help you think of open-ended questions. The journal will also help you cite evidence to support your inferences about the text.
- Create a Theme Presentation: Working pairs or groups of 3, create a presentation to teach one of the themes to your classmates. Based on an activity devised by Shmoop. com, the Multimedia Theme Project, must be brief, original, accurate, and entertaining.
- Publish your Work: Check out Ms. McMillan’s example below.
