Today you will be working on your stages of plot foldable as well as page 16 of your foldable notebook: "Types of Conflict."
Stages of plot: As a class we will recall the events of The Hunger Games and map out the stages of plot from the story.
Types of Conflict: On your own, or with a partner, recall the events from The Hunger Games and identify 4 different typs of conflicts from the story on page 16 in your notebook. Be sure to write complete sentences for your responses.
At the bottom of the page, explain how 1 of the 4 conflicts you identified was resolved.
This week, we will be reading the summary of The Hunger Games in preparation for our class novel, Catching Fire, the second book in the series.
As we read through the summary, you will answer comprehension questions in order to build background knowlage of the world and characters created in this series.
Each Day, we will follow up our summary review by watching those sections from the movie. We will compare and contrast the movie with the summary, and fill in the missing information that was not included in the summary or movie.
Today you are going to be working in your foldable notebook.
Page 10: Identifying Conflicts
On this page, you need to identify an internal and external conflict from the short story "The Tell-Tale Heart." After you've identified an example of each type of conflict, explain how each one was resolved.
Page 11: Evaluating a Narrator
On the top of this page, make a claim by turning the question around - Is the narrator in "The Tell-Tale Heart" a reliable narrator?
Next, identify text evidence to support your claim. Make an inference for each piece of evidence explaining why it is a valid form of support.
You need to provide a piece of text evidence for each of the following categories: thoughts, dialogue, feelings, choices and actions.

Today we are going to analyze writing prompts in order to make sure we respond fully.
We will reread two short passages from "The Elevator" and work together to write responses that fully address the prompts.
Academic focus: contrast, infer, textual evidence
We will also go over last week's CFA on story elements.
Today we are going to take an Assessment over what we have covered so far in Unit 1.
First we will review the role "setting" plays in a story. Our last assessment showed that we need to work on how the setting of a story can affect the mood of a story as well as the characters.
We will then go over key concepts or terms used in the questions of today's assessment. (In the future, you will not be able to ask for any clarification on questions.) Then you will be on your own to complete the assessment.
