    517GHQAX72L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

    IN CLASS THIS WEEK, WE WILL CONTINUE TO READ FISH BY L.S. MATTHEWS.
    TO STAY TUNED IN WITH OUR LITERATURE CIRCLES ROLES, EACH WEEK, YOU WILL COMPLETE A ROLE BASED ON THE CHAPTERS WE HAVE READ DURING CLASS. THIS WEEK, WE ARE FOCUSING ON LITERARY LUMINARY.
    ON THE SERVER,  YOU WILL FIND CHAPTER 2. READ CHAPTER 2 ON YOUR IPAD AND COMPLETE THE LITERARY LUMINARY ROLE.  A REMINDER OF THE ROLE IS STATED BELOW:

    Your role is to locate a few special sections of the

    text that you think your group would like to hear

    read aloud.

    The idea is to help people

    remember some of the sections of the text that

    might be interesting, powerful, funny, puzzling or

    important.

    1. Choose a passage from chapter 2, to share.

    2. Justify why you chose that passage.

    Possible reasons for choosing a passage to share:

    • well written
    • confusing
    • interesting
    • surprising
    • important to the text

    Don’t forget to give examples from the text!

    Once you have completed the above activity in your Reading book, share your work with another member of your reading group.
