Class Name Literature 1 is ALWAYS ACCORDING TO THE SCHOLE ZOOM CALENDAR
This week’s focus: At the Back of the North Wind

In preparation for Schole support class:

PRINT a BLANK story chart. It is in the RESOURCES section under READING-THE STORY CHART-from September 18.

Please have read up to chapter XX1 If possible.
A chapter a day is a good strategy.

In class we are considering these questions.
Please take some time to look at them and perhaps highlight evidence (quotes from the book) as you are reading that may answer these questions.

What is the mood or atmosphere of the place where the story happens? Is it cheerful and sunny, or dark and bleak,? What words, phrases, or descriptions does the author use to create this atmosphere?

Is the setting a real or imaginary place? If Is imaginary, is it subject to the same physical laws as our world?

To be completed this week:

Read a chapter a day and work on completing the book by the end of October.
Have up to chapter XX! for Thursday.

ENRICHMENT – Extra resources for children and families who desire more

There are TWO Malcolm Guite poems in the Resources section of the Schole @home.
You are welcome to up these and any other words that jump out at you into your commonplace journal.
