We officially have one week until Thanksgiving break! We can do it! 🙂
Monday: Students in 1st and 3rd periods worked on a journal entry from Bryce’s point of view about a chapter we read previously in Flipped. After, we continued listening to Flipped while having great discussion about the characters, conflict, and themes of the story! Students in 2nd and 4th periods were introduced to their Flipped lit circles! This year, students will be working in groups to discuss certain aspects of the book. Students will complete all discussions on Edmodo.
