“You MUST read this book!”

Good afternoon class!

To get you brainstorming about books that have affected you, start filling out the handout, “If I Were a Bookshelf.” We’ll place these in the classroom so you can inspire your peers to read your favorite books. Because being an avid reader is so important to being a great writer.

We are also going to create a contract for the class.  We will all be signing it.

Don’t forget your journals tomorrow, so we can officially start writing!

“You MUST read this book!”

Good morning class!

To get you brainstorming about books that have affected you, start filling out the handout, “If I Were a Bookshelf.” Don’t worry about getting overly detailed. It’s just meant to get you thinking.

Now that you’ve had some time to brainstorm, on a post-it note, write down the number one book you feel everyone simply MUST read. Write down the title, author, and one sentence explaining why. We’ll be posting these in the room to give others reading ideas.

We are also going to create a contract for the class.  We will all be signing it tomorrow.
