Students have the class period to work on their projects today. I have all materials needed for any of the options, from art supplies to computer time.

As students work, I again meander to address questions and keep students on task. For the most part, students simply want me to check in work. Does the work meet the standards? What more could be added? These are questions I love to hear! Students are doing a nice job analyzing the characterization, especially on how language choice contributes (we've done a lot of practice on this), though they often are missing reference to the beginning and ending of the novel. These are important plot elements given the change characters experience, so I remind students to consider them.
