Bookies-- Read and Comment!


New Page GoalVERY short reading goal this time-- we're only going to page 171, the beginning of Part 4.  Quite a few bookies had not reached the last goal and requested that, just this once, we do a short goal so they can catch up.  Unfortunately, I completed the new goal today at lunch, so I'll have to find something else to read for the week.  :)

Roles:  We'll keep the same roles for the coming week and switch it up next time.  Keep using your post-it notes!  Hopefully they're helping.

Time/Place change:  From now on, we will meet in Mr. Thibault's room at 12:05.  If you need a pass to get to the front of the lunch line, come see me; I'll write you one! Also, I'm adding a calendar reminder to send out an email to teachers reminding them to let you out of class for the club on Thursdays.  Hopefully, this well help you guys speed it up.  We definitely need more time.

What to Comment HereLet's use this post to discuss what we're finding in our roles AND to ask questions about what we're reading and what people are posting.  Don't understand a word or phrase?  Don't know what Kommunist means?  Who is narrating this book, anyway?!  What's a Nazi?  Who is Jesse Owens?  What do the drawings on p. 14 mean?  Who/what is the struggler (p. 157, 168)?  What is Mein Kampf and why is it the stuggler's "savior?"  What's up with the Mayor's wife?  Why won't "they" let Hans in the Nazi Party?  Who are "they?"  On page 105, Death points out that Hans and Rosa's son joins the army and and "tragically" ends up in Stalingrad, Russia.  Why is that tragic?  What happened there?  Get the picture?  Let's talk!

I had a lot of connections but her is three of them......

Text to me - on p. 24 I made the connection: One time I was making snowmen in the field with my friend, and I found a red toy car in the snow.

Text to me - on p. 37 I made the connection: Whenever I would have nightmares my dad would come to my room and soothe me.

Text to Text - on p. 55 I made the connection: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is also in the time of Hitler.
