11.11 | CharacteriThesis

Today, students completed the word analogy of the day. Then, students read independently.

Students finished yesterday’s characterization assignment and began writing a thesis statement for the gateway skeleton essay that starts today (in Google Classroom). Students should either write the thesis based on the mom from the video OR any character from a book they’re currently reading/have read this year.  The thesis should be finished by tomorrow/Monday, as students will move on to the topic sentences.
