Students wrote their final short comprehension quiz for Fever 1793 and then brainstormed topics (single word ideas, usually abstract nouns) derived from our novel study. We watched an awesome video about developing a theme statement from a topic and then looked at an example from our novel.
1. Choose three topics from Fever 1793 and develop them into three theme statements.
2. Novel study tracking sheets are due tomorrow.
We brainstormed briefly about the Roman Empire then looked on our timeline for when the Roman Empire took place. We had a quick discussion about the Middle Ages (also known as medieval times or the dark ages) and how the Renaissance was a rebirth of ancient Roman ideas. We spoke about The Silk Road and how it contributed to the start of the Renaissance (connecting to worldview) and we spoke about The Crusades and how they contributed to the Renaissance (connecting again to worldview).
1.In our Venn diagram of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism - what would go in the middle? What do they all have in common?
2. If you have any clarifying questions from today's class, bring them tomorrow and make sure you ask. It will help you and probably your classmates as well.
