Following and Idea Through a Story Assignment

Following an Idea Through the Story

As a class we have been moving past simple ideas about a character or a story into complex ideas.  The focus has been part of an effort to have students think deeper about the book they are reading and what the author is trying to tell us.

The assignment is to have the students think about one of the books they are reading or have just finished and create an idea about what the author is trying to show in the book.   Please write 1 or 2 paragraphs discussing the main idea of your story, using text evidence to back up your thoughts,  

Examples from Out of My Mind and in-class discussion include:
  • Not judging a person based on their appearance
  • Perseverance and how to prove others wrong

This assignment will be due Tuesday, November 12th and can be either typed or handwritten.
