Blocks 1, 2, 3, 5: Today in class we started our webquests about the environmental issues the Carl Hiaasen wrote about in the two novels we are reading. Those of you reading Flush worked on a water pollution webquest while those of you reading Scat worked on a webquest about the endangered Florida panther. We looked at several sites containing informational text so that you could begin to understand why the author might build entire novels around these specific issues. We will have the laptops again tomorrow to continue our webquest.
HW 1, 2, 3, 5: None
Block 4: Today in class we continued our hunger presentations. We will hopefully get more than two done tomorrow so that we can finish up and get back to reading! Fantastic job today providing specific, targeted, and KIND feedback to your peers. You guys rock!
HW 4: None
