I have one class set of Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief, but I teach two preps of Language Arts. You will read this mostly in class. If you get behind, then you must sign out the book from me. Remember our discussion concerning lost, forgotten, or damaged materials.
We will be slowly analyzing this text both as an introduction into Greek mythology, and as a text that allows for a close read. That being said, we will spend close to ten weeks with Riordan's novel. I will pace the class to allow for struggling readers extra time to keep up and as an opportunity to challenge fast readers. Sometimes reading fast is not really reading.
Let's have fun with the mythology of Greece and maybe, just maybe, learn something new.
Today and tomorrow I will go over any missing/late work that you may have. It is your responsibility to record your missing assignments and turn them in as soon as possible. Consult the Calendar for sentence frames/more details on your particular assignment.
The average class grade you receive for your work is a B, but the amount of missing/late work really drags down the class average. Let's finish this semester strong.
If you need something printed, then let me know. I will gladly do so.
We will reflect on our last project, Twister or Dice, both textually and orally. We will also look at some figures from the last Toy Co. meeting. As we finish up this project, we will begin our analysis of Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief.
I will pass out copies of the book, but you will be expected to be respectful while you use it. Do not forget your number. As a reminder, we will not be reading this at home. We will read the book in class.
