Textual Evidence - The Crucible
We did an activity on how to find and use textual evidence to make inferences when we were reading Of Plymouth Plantation. In English, we circle back and practice tasks till we're proficient. Today, we're using these textual evidence skills in relation to The Crucible and "At the Foot of the Gallows".
There are three parts to this assignment. Follow the instructions listed on the handout, found below. For part 1, don't forget to answer the "Your Turn" questions on StudySync.
Part 1 was due in class today. If you did not finish this part, you must finish it tonight. We will continue to work on Part 2 and 3 in class tomorrow.
Today we remember the bravery of the first responders and the lives lost on September 11, 2001 when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Late work may only be turned in up to 3 days late. After this time, I will not grade the assignment. Be responsible and plan ahead!
Warm up: Hyphens: Prefixes practice
