We finished up with the Benjamin Banneker piece today, reviewing the types of things I’m going to ask students to find on their own with a new text next week. Students then returned to their narratives. They worked with a partner to identify opportunities for more imagery. Then they wrote up some character sketches for the people in their narratives. And finally they worked on some rough comic strip outlines of the three stories they were attempting to tell. Next week we’ll work on integrating this work into the narratives and assembling a finished product to turn in. Homework: if your narratives aren’t already typed in a Google doc, work on that. You might also spend some time on these character sketches and comic strip outlines.
