We haven’t been at our independent books for all that long yet, but I’d like you to get some ideas down about how you see it relating to our class. That is, not necessarily related to the current topic in our class, but to the Central Questions. Please take a look at the requirements for “Book Projects” (found under “Assignments” at the top of this blog), so you can begin thinking about what a final project would look like for the book you’re reading. Today you’re going to write a blog post in which you begin to figure out how you will approach this project.
Call the post “Independent Reading” Based on what you’ve read so far, which of our four central questions would you be most likely to use your book to answer? Why? What big ideas would be most important to talk about? What details would you find most useful for answering that question?
