This week we are going to focus on finishing our annotations of the preface of Behind the Scenes. After finishing our annotations, we will identify the claims made in the preface and paraphrase those claims into our own words. On Wednesday, we will read the folktale If the People Could Fly where we will focus on the author's tone towards slavery and determine the theme or the overall message the author wants us to understand about slavery. On Thursday, we will read chapter one of Behind the Scenes, and focus on the major events of Elizabeth Keckley's childhood to see the effect of those events on her. Friday, we will take quiz 1 over the preface and chapter one of Behind the Scenes and the If the People Could Fly.
We visited the library on Tuesday, and we got the chance to partake in a "booking tasting" where we were able to see the new books the library received. It was a lot of fun!
