Only two weeks before Christmas—this year has flown past! Because of time constraints, students weren’t issued copies of our novel last week; however, they will receive them today. Students can also expect overnight reading assignments.
Monday: Last day for Scholastic book orders.
Tuesday: Chapter 2 (students will be expected to read it Monday night independently)
RDW #1--Create three complex sentences beginning with dependent clauses, three starting with independent clauses, and three compound sentences. Put a box around FANBOYS, and circle dependent marker words. Highlight all commas.
RDW #2--Compare the first chapter of Homeless Bird with the AoWs “First Comes Marriage” and “The Problem with Arranged Marriage.” These authors of the articles had opposing points of view. Which author do you think Gloria Whelan, author of Homeless Bird, would agree with and why? Cite and highlight text evidence from the article and the book.
I’ve attached “The Problem With Arranged Marriage” because that it portrays arranged marriage in a negative light, just as Gloria Whelan does. J.
RDW #3—What evidence in the first three chapters indicates the type of relationship Koly is going to have with her new family? Cite and highlight text evidence from each of the first three chapters.
