Fold your paper into 4 boxes. Label them, one for each chapter (front and back) for a total of 6 chapter boxes.
For each square, provide 2 important plot points, 1 setting (including atmosphere), and one visual that sums up the main ideas.
The leftover boxs are for you to write a theme statement and explanation.. Remember what we talked about yesterday.
Don’t forget to be working on FW#6!
As we near the end of the book it’s time to start thinking about theme.
Write a short (3-5 sentence) paragraph stating a possible theme and explanation of that theme.
