Important Announcement: Please bring your laptop to class tomorrow!

Our warm-up today was to write about your favorite character in a piece of literature. Next, we did a writing exercise where we brainstormed people that we know, alongside descriptive adjectives for each person (direct characterization) and evidence that those descriptions are true (indirect characterization). We’ll use those later on for developing a personal narrative.

Next, we talked about denotation and connotation. Here are those notes: connotative language (2)

Finally, we began talking about vocabulary for this week. Here is that PowerPoint: Hunger Games Vocabulary Activities

Homework for tonight was to finish your autobiography of a reader. I’m really looking forward to reading those!
