September 16

First Chapter Friday (ELA 7-8)

You’re going to pick a new novel today and just read the beginning. You may not continue or finish that novel, but you’ll read the beginnings of many novels and get a sense of what you like and don’t like in stories.

As you read, you can consider:

  • The Who, What, When, Where, and Why of the story told
  • What you find interesting or not interesting.
  • Whether you would continue reading that book if you could and if you’d recommend it to others.

You’ll create a video review of your First Chapter Friday to share your thoughts.

Some novels you can pick from to start include:

Less mature novels first — > to more mature novels at the end
