Have a great weekend!
With the ideas from today's seminar fresh in your mind (and your notes), review once again your prompt for the expository essay and make some notes about what you might like to write about. We will discuss the essay in-depth tomorrow. We will also review your test.
Tonight you will prepare evidence for our first socratic seminar by completing this assignment. You must PRINT it and bring it to class along with your annotated copy of Treasure Island tomorrow.
You will be graded using our Socratic Seminar Rubric. Review the rubric to be sure you understand what is expected of you.
The ideas we gather during our seminar will be your starting point for our Treasure Island Expository Essay. We will discuss this more in-depth in class, but you may wish to review the requirements of the essay prior to our seminar; knowing what you'll be writing about can help guide your notes during the seminar.
