For Wednesday read to “Saint-Malo” page 95. We will probably go to a coffee shop for our discussion group.
If you are working on a creative writing piece, I would like to see a rough draft by Tuesday the 20th. I will give you feedback soon after that. After you fine tune this writing, please put it on your personal blog.
If you would like a guided tour of the local research tools/documents the Library Center (south location) can offer, please sign up in the comments below. A Project on local history can fulfill several competencies depending on what the final product is.
If you are reading “All The Light We Cannot See” with the group please read to page 50 or the chapter titled Sea of Flames for Friday’s discussion.

If you are not reading The Giver but are in this A class, please enter the title of what you are reading in the comment section.
Now that you have done some work developing your characters and story plots, it’s time to think about dialogue. What is dialogue in a fictional short story?
Use any of the following scenarios (or create your own) to write dialogue between your main character and any of your secondary characters:
- Breaking a new year’s resolution
- Having a difficult phone call with a parent
- Ending a relationship
- Encountering a fallen childhood hero
- Getting advice on a difficult issue or personal challenge
You can write about these topics as they’re happening, or write a conversation in which the characters rehash the incident.
You should have at least a page of dialogue written by the end of the hour.
