Self-Starter: Pick up your composition book and an Anticipation Guide.  thoughtfully fill out the Guide and write (next under "Notes and Quickwrites") about the first statement (about memories) what you know and/or think about the statement.  Write one or more paragraphs for 1/2 page or more.

2. Discuss the statement.
3.  Look at paragraphs and create a rubric.
  A1 did part of the 5 and all of the 1
  A2 did the 5 and the 1.
  A3 did the 5 and the 1.
  A4 did  5 and the 1.

4. If time, begin The Giver -- Distopian Fiction
   A1 to page 8
   A2 to  2 or 3
   A3 to page 2
   A4  not started

Reminder:  Spelling test next time on the prefix bi- which means two or halves.

 "Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don’t ever see them fading."
-Kazuo Ishiguro
