|Eliezer Wiesel, Holocaust survivor|
and author of Night
IWBAT plan my ideas for an expository response to literature that describes how Eliezer Wiesel is a dynamic character in Night.
1. A dynamic character changes (in a big way) during the course of the story, whereas a static character stays the same.
2. A response to literature is writing that shows your understanding and interpretation of literature.
3. During the prewriting phase of the writing cycle, we brainstorm ideas, select a topic, and begin organizing ideas.
1. Read and comment on two teammates' education essays:
- Open this spreadsheet.
- Click on the link (on the right side) for one of your teammates to open his/her essay.
- Read your teammate's essay.
- Make two comments: one positive (something you love) and one critical (something you wish he/she had done differently).
- To make a comment, select the part of the text that you want to comment on and click Comment under the Insert menu. You can also push CTRL + ALT + M.
- If you finish early: Read and comment on another teammate's education essay.
- If you were absent on Friday: View Friday's lesson (find the link to 12/07 using the drop-down menu on the right side of this site) and follow the directions to submit your essay to Mr. T.
- You can view an exemplar for this assignment here. (Note, this exemplary essay focuses on Vladek Spiegelman from Maus, rather than Elie Wiesel from Night.)
- If you finish early: Read Elie Wiesel's biography on his foundation's website.
Homework: finish planning your body paragraphs on pp. 3-4 of today's classwork
