Writing Assignment

All blocks will be starting the writing assignment associated with the independent reading project for this marking period.  This will be a response to text on the historical fiction novel.  Blocks 2 and 3 have been assigned to write the FIRST paragraph ONLY of this essay as homework tonight. 
The thesis statement should be something like:  This is a good historical fiction novel because it is historically accurate, ______, and ______.  They can pick 2 elements that make the book good, and they must also talk about its historical accuracy (artifacts, events, clothing, people, et cetera that are accurate for the time period).
Reminder that there is a tutorial PowerPoint on Responses to Text posted on this blog.... back in October, I believe.
