We had a great start to our new novel, Al Capone Does My Shirts! We spent a lot of time discussing the exposition of the book and began analyzing the interesting characters that we’ve been to introduced to so far. Additionally this week, students participated in their first Socratic Seminar, which has students respond to an open ended question and then have a student led discussion based on their responses. Students did a great job of leading their own discussions and analyzing the main characters.
Also, it is crucial that students bring their novel to class each day. Please help your child make sure that the book makes it to school each day.
