First Chapters Assigned!
All right, Bookies and Participating Staff Members...
We met today, and the group decided to read to page 62 by Wednesday, 9/23. We had said by Friday, but to particpate in the blog, you will need to be ready to go! The overall goal is to finish The Book Thief by Thanksgiving break so that we can crank into another novel over the holidays. Woohoo holidays! :)
By Wednesday next week, I will post some discussion questions over what we have read, and we'll see what everyone has to say. We will then meet on Fridays during 8th grade lunch to process the blogged conversation, and then I will post "minutes" from that meeting--including our next chapters assigned-- on the blog for all. This will be the way the weeks will progress until the book is complete. Concerns? Questions? Let me know. Until then, happy weekend. Woohoo weekends!
We missed you, Joel! Hope you feel better soon.
