Today we reviewed the use of Faye Brownlie's four-quadrant reading chart to help connect with our novels. I demonstrated its use using the opening two pages of 1984. We also discussed how to use stickie notes to connect as we read. In this way each of us will have a more autonomous and personal experience.
Next, I met with the 1984 and BNW groups and we had short meetings to discuss the opening ideas in those novels. I thought your ideas and questions were right on the mark. Remember we all need to keep to the reading completion schedules that our groups set.
Thanks for a great class - very professional work.
