After silent reading you were given the opportunity to finish your Response Journal blog posts on The Lottery, by Shirley Jackson. Don’t forget that you need to include hyperlinks as part of the “connections” section of your response, and you need to add a paragraph where you discuss your initial reactions to the 1996, made-for-tv movie based on the story. Part of your blogging responsibility is also to comment on at least 3 of your classmates blog posts. Remember that you want to offer meaningful comments, constructive criticism, or add something new to their ideas. It is not enough to say “I agree,” or “good job.”
Next class we will finish the movie and look at a story and poem with similar themes.
Don’t forget to renew your library book if you are still reading it – it is now overdue.
