March 4, 2005
This week, we will continue
to work on
the reading, "Flower Drum Song," from page 6 of your new text.
Today's Class Work:
1. Retake the vocabulary quiz. Do not use
your dictionary (unless you missed our last class). I have
scrambled the sentences to make it more challenging!
2. Review the terms conflict, internal
conflict, simile, and resolution with your teacher. Look at
the story again to find examples.
3. Discuss with your teacher a time you had
a conflict with a child about something. What did you disagree
about? What did you say to the child? What did the child say
4. The teacher will show you how to write
and punctuate dialogue using quotation marks.
5. Now, write a short paragraph that shows a
conflict between an adult and child. Make sure the setting is
clear (where you and the child are). Each of the characters
(you and the child) should speak three times. Give your
paragraph a title.
Take your paragraph home with you today. Check
your spelling and grammar. Add at least 20 more words in two or
Bring your paragraph to class on March 11.
