Reflection: Routines and Procedures How'd he do that? Comparing Written Memoir to Graphic Memoir - Section 1: SSR

 

So...this was our first day of SSR time post having a class novel to read. Unfortunately, they did not head my warning to get a book in hand. I'm not sure what I am going to do to ensure this doesn't happen again. I allowed the few kids who were unprepared to read their history homework and warned them that it would be very difficult to complete their SSR reflection the next day without having a book to reflect on.

How'd he do that? Comparing Written Memoir to Graphic Memoir

Unit 2: Narrative Reading and Writing: Persepolis and Memoir
Lesson 8 of 11

Objective: SWBAT demonstrate comprehension of literary nonfiction as it appears in multiple formats by discussing similarities and difference between Persepolis and other mentor texts.

Big Idea: We've spent two weeks looking at a graphic memoir--now it's time to see how other writers use imagery to teach us their life lessons.
