Other Preparation Activities

  • Record two entries in your Reading Notebook.
  • Search the internet for an online resource that supplements one of the texts from this week’s reading (see my list of supplemental texts for examples of what you might find). Once you’ve found your resource, paste a link in this shared Google spreadsheet. Be sure to fill in all the information asked for in the sheet.


  • By Tuesday (10/21): Using #amreading, write a brief “thus-far” summary of the book you’re reading for your book review (i.e., give us the quick lowdown on what’s happening). Be sure to include the book name in the tweet. Also post two comments about this week’s reading/watching. By Sunday (10/26): Reply to three of your peers’ tweets, responding to the quotation or the reading comments. You can find your classmates on Twitter via the list on the flipside of this link.
