Our first unit / Homework for tonight

Today we began our first unit. We'll be studying short stories. Our essential questions for the unit will be:
1. What makes a "good" short story?
2. How can I write a "good" short story?

Homework for tonight: Do the back side of the Reading Comprehension sheet we started in class today. Remember to try out the strategies I modeled for you in class. Also, if you have not yet gotten an independent reading book, please get one! This weekend you should read your book for an hour. If you have any questions about the independent reading project, check out the posting yesterday for details. Feel free to ask in class, too.
