Novel Focus + Note Taking + Research Assignment


I hope you had a nice and restful weekend. I would like to remind you to bring your novel (Chandra’s Secrets or Homeless Bird) to class every day. We are going to be making our thinking visible with sticky notes. The purpose is to be able to discuss specific topics in Literature Circles. You should make a note each time you see the following:

  • Character development/changes/decisions
  • Methods of control
  • Issues specific to developing countries
  • Coming of age moments/incidents/experiences
