Story Pyramid!

Folks, check out some rock-solid work from Ben from period 1. Notice how his theme statement has been scrubbed of any character references or key events so that his well-crafted them may "export" to other stories or life situations. Nice summary, Nice Main idea, Nice Sequence of Events, and Professionally Presented. Well done Ben...

Irony: Check for Understanding!

Kingston (period 3) and Hailee (period 1) did some outstanding work on Irony from the Giver! Can you see how they explained how the Giver shows the theme of Appearances versus Reality? Do you see how they used text-based details and commentary to deepen their answer? Attaway you two! Well done, Mr. Mauel
