Goals: To connect an author’s use of language to purpose and effect; to articulate main ideas and make inferences about characters’ motivations based on evidence from the text
Opener: No opener sheets this week. Go to pages 7-9 in the PSAT “Practice Test #2” (it is the booklet that was inside the booklet). Complete questions 1-5 (6 & 7 if you have time). You may either read the passage first, and read the questions second, or read the questions first, and read the passage second. Whichever you choose, make sure you remember for tomorrow — I’m going to ask you to do the opposite.
