Each period had a slightly different lesson today so here is everything done across periods.
Journal entry: "What does it mean to be committed to something or someone? Name one person/thing that you are committed to, and explain how and why you are committed."
Discussed as a class.
"Looking back at your notes and journal entries, draw a Venn diagram in your journal and compare and contrast what it means to be obligated vs. what it means to be committed to someone or something."
Read chapters 10 and 11 then add the following to your journal:
"At this point in the novel, does Grant feel obligated to help Jefferson or committed to helping Jefferson? Explain your position with evidence from the text."
Period 5 was able to make it to the next activity called "On the Fence". Students went to either one side of the room or the other depending on their answer to the above question. They then had to convince someone sitting "On The Fence", or in the middle, that their evidence and their point of view was correct.
Regardless of which period you are in, you should have all the journal entries done for today.
