Just in time for Halloween!
Please read A Ghost Story by Mark Twain. I recommend reading it several times. Use the Story Analysis sheet to guide you as you read the short story. (You are not writing answers to the questions; use it as a guide for reflection).
After reading and reflecting on the story, create a focus question. Remember focus questions are interpretive questions that may have more than one reasonable answer supported by evidence from the text. To answer these types of questions, you need to think critically and interpret the textual evidence.
We will NOT meet next Wednesday because you have your science inservice day. Have fun!
Today in class we practiced using the Shared Inquiry method to analyze Cynthia Rylant's story, An Angel for Solomon Singer.
Please write a paragraph response to the focus question that we discussed in class.
Focus Question: Do Solomon Singer's memories of Indiana make it easier or harder for him to love New York City? Explain.
Remember to use at least TWO details from the text to support your answer. Start with a topic sentence and end with a meaningful conclusion. Use the Yes Ma'am strategy as a guide when writing your response.
