Odes were today’s focus. We analyzed odes by discussing content and labeling the parts of these two examples by Gary Soto: “Ode to Pablo’s Tennis Shoes” and “Ode to Pomegranates.”
Next we compiled a list of required elements for an original ode, which will be composed next class period.

Today in class we continued our study of character/identity terms, ones that are precise + higher level. After reading two articles, watching a short video clip, and recalling info from 7th grade, we characterized Ryan Lochte, Malala Yousafzia, Dory, and Ponyboy Curtis.
These activities were done independently, with a partner, in small groups, and as a whole class.
The retrieval chart used in class, must be completed for homework if you did not get done during class.
