Because of the fire drill yesterday, third and fourth period looked very different today.
Warm up: What is the difference between a static character and a dynamic character?
Working in groups, each group member made their own circle map about one of the main characters. In the center is the character's name. In the outside circle is where you will put all the details you can think of about that character. Outside the circles is your "frame of reference". This is where you will put quotes from the story that give you information about the character.
Once your circle map is as complete as possible, use the details and quotes to describe your character. Be sure to include physical traits, behavioral traits, and whether the character is static or dynamic and how you know.

Warm up: Simple and Complex Subjects
Today we learned about different literary devices. Each person looked up information about a different literary device using the link found on Google Classroom. After completing the activity with their literary device, students walked around to teach others about their literary device.
