Planning an upcoming unit with #1984 as a core text. Join me, #DisruptTexts friends, as I try to figure this unit out... (this will be my ongoing thread as I pull together ideas over the next few weeks).

Suggestions more than welcome... #aplitchat #aplangchat #engchat
So Ss will be moving from a unity of study in Storytelling, and next we’ll move to a unit of study on Truth, with 1984 as a core text.
Got my @Tolerance_org Social Justice Standards out and ready!…

Day 1 of summer school down. We’re reading Wilson’s FENCES. Our first paired text was Morrison's “Recitatif.” Tomorrow, it’s the “Bona and Paul” Excerpt from Jean Toomer’s CANE. #pairedtexts #engchat #litchat
Day 2 included a close reading of “Bona and Paul,” followed by theme statements for the story, and a gender-flipped reading of Act One Scene One of FENCES. Two girls read the parts of Troy and Bono and there was much engagement and laughter.
Preliminary Notes from Day 3:

Student to me: Did you pick FENCES or did they tell you to teach it?
Me: No, I picked it. I love teaching it.
Him: You picked a good one.
