Book Talks and LAL Coding

Since today was an early out, our schedule was pretty simple:

  1. Independent reading
  2. Book talks
  3. Work time

I shared a document with students on their google classroom that showed them how to “code” their Letter About Literature AFTER making revisions based on partner suggestions. If you weren’t here, make sure to look at this document, so you know what to highlight and in what color. Your document should be turned in tomorrow before you come to class.

Students should also make sure to read through their piece again before turning it in because this is a letter that is going to a contest and, possibly, an author, so it is more important than ever to make sure there aren’t mistakes in it.


  1. Read for 25 minutes.
  2. BT reflection (if this applies to you)
  3. Complete your revisions/coding and turn in your rough draft to me.
