For the remainder of the year, students in ELA will learn about and explore the genre of dystopian literature. Students will read dystopian short stories and analyze the dystopian setting, society, and lessons learned based on each story. After being introduced to the elements of dystopian literature, students will begin reading Lois Lowry's The Giver. The final project will be a narrative writing piece where students will put what they've learned about dystopian societies to the test in their own story. The goal in learning about dystopian literature is to recognize things that need to be changed in our current society in order to prevent potentially terrible events from happening in our future.
Students, in all classes, are happily reading independently! Students were able to look at texts in our class library and check them out to take home. Every other week, students will have time to read their independent reading book in class. The schedule has changed because students are able to visit the school library during ELA class at different times during the week and can now check out books at the school library! The NEW schedule is as follows: 701: Thursdays - Library time period 4 and at lunch on Mondays and Fridays 702: Thursdays - Library time period 4 and at lunch on Mondays and Fridays 703: Mondays- Library time period 4 and at lunch on Mondays and Fridays 704: Tuesdays - Library time period 4 and at lunch on Mondays and Fridays
