We also continued the character work begun this week. With a partner, students used the shared text of The One and Only Ivan to list -- and defend -- character traits for two of the main characters, Ivan and Stella. This is a work in progress to which we will be returning next week.
Finally, in preparation for some peer editing work tomorrow, students drafted a friendly letter to themselves about what they think their Echo Hill experience might be like. Tomorrow, we will work on giving and getting feedback and then revising the letters.
