Ms. Wolk and I have been working with Class 602 on The Giver. Today's lesson focused on how character mood changes depending on their circumstances.
We started by gmailing students a link to a "How do you feel today?" chart, and matched that with a "How do you feel today?" quiz. For the quiz, we used a Google form:
The student quiz results went automatically from the form into a Google spreadsheet:
From there, we modeled how to quote the book and identify character mood in a Google Document.
Finally, we broke the kids into groups so they could use body language to show how Jonas's mood might change over the course of a chapter.
