English I Honors - 3rd
Students will receive the first 5 minutes of class to copy down the first two words for Vocabulary Set 2 into their notebooks. From there, they will receive 10 minutes to read their DEAR novels. They will then move into their Jigsaw Groups #2. These groups will be comprised of students who read the same sections as well as those who did not. From there, they will work together to identify 4-6 major events from each section as well as 2-3 details about Odysseus that can be learned from them as well. Once they have been given time to complete the activity, they will go on to be assigned reading sections in "The Odyssey Part 2" and will begin to read/annotate those sections as well as take notes on them.
