Do Now #1: Come up with as many unfair stereotypes and opinions about others as you can (you can list these out) and explain in detail why you believe they are unfair. Think about stereotypes based on race, gender, weight, ethnicity and religion (Please be appropriate and respectful or we will have to call home and read the answer to your parent/guardian)Think about the origin of the stereotype!
In your reader’s circles (no more than 4) you will be creating a comic strip of the events from a chapter we have read of your choice. You need at least six boxes. Each box must contain a quote that matches the action. The quote must be properly cited, (author’s last name, page #). The comic must depict the entire chapter from start to finish. Feel free to use colored pencils!Go!!!
Do Now #2: Create a summary of the novel’s events. What has happened so far? What themes have been developing? What predictions can you make?Try to be as specific as possible!
Do Now #3: Describe a time in your life when you have faced discrimination. Either heard about it from a friend, or experienced it yourself.Please be descriptive!
