Today’s  Agenda:

Turn in your Quiz of the Week!!! 
Pick up your composition books. 

Spelling test!! Put everything below your desks and don't talk!

Do you remember what to take notes about while we watch the movie?
  • Differences between the book and the movie. 
  • More evidence for your argument essay topic
You'll stay in your normal seats today, but at one point during the movie we'll have you get up, find someone with your same argument topic, and you'll talk about your evidence. 

Pull out your composition books, open to your notes pages, and let's start!

And after we've finished the movie, let's hear what you thought!! 
  • Which did you like better- the book, or the movie? Why?
  • How were the characters different in the movie and the book?
  • How was the plot different in the movie than in the book?
  • Why do you think the producers chose to make the movie that way?

If You Were Absent:

Watch The Outsiders film at home! (It's on Amazon Prime or YouTube for an additional charge  and available as a DVD on Netflix.)
Turn in your Quiz of the Week and come to make up the Spelling Test.
