Last night was back to school night.

Today is a minimum day.  Today we will do our book project check-in and work on our projects.  A good time to ask for clarification.


You need your textbook for this assessment.

We will use visual notes and our knowledge of the text to demonstrate our understanding of the MGD short story.

It’s an assessment…so I won’t post it here.


Listen and read along to remainder of story.  Visual note it on the board.  Answer the following questions in notebook on page 4:

(1) Fill in the unknown information at the end of the story. What do you believe happened. Minimum five well structured and complex sentences. (HINT: this is creative writing, which means YOU decide what happened)
(2)Was the game fair? Why or why not? Minimum of three sentences.

Get a check mark from me to show how you used your time to your benefit.


Read MDG up to Page 54 in small groups.  Answer two questions in notebook on new page 4 title “MDG Qs.”

  1. What was Rainsford’s first plan during the hunt (after leaving the gates)?
  2. Why didn’t this plan work?


STEAL chart using the student’s favorite villain from television, movie, or book.  Use what you know!


Visual notes and application.  Listen to a portion of MDG and apply the new concept to the short story.


Dates and goals for projects.


Hello everyone!  I am not here!  

Read your own books silently for the first ten minutes of class.  After…

Get out paper for the following work:

On this page (or another that you glue/staple in your notebook) please create a visual of each of the characters,describing what they look like, what their personality is like, and what major things they have said or done.  One example for you character sketches is attached in Google Classroom.

EACH character, after they are identified and THOROUGHLY described, should then be given a theme song.  Choose a theme song (or walk-up song for baseball fans) from your own music tastes or pop culture that you feel fits the character and what they are about.

There are FOUR characters total. You can use your STEAL notes to help create your characters.  I will collect your notebooks first thing Thursday.

Don’t forget to add Theme/Walk Up Song.


Hello my beautiful students!

After your ten minutes of silent reading, please get out your notebooks and textbooks. Based on the reading done yesterday, you should be able to fill in your STEAL charts pretty thoroughly for EVERY INDIVIDUAL CHARACTER.

I expect at least three items per letter in STEAL for every individual character (not total). You may or may not be able to fill out the letter “T” (“thoughts”) for the characters. This would depend on narration style.


Silent reading.

STEAL charts.

Read through page 44 MDG.
