Book Blog Set

Friday, January 8, 2010

Well after messing up last year by reading this wonderful book to my students and then trying to do it again with the blog in place, I have fixed this issue. My students have no idea what lies ahead for them with this book, project and possible collaboration that may take place.
I am planning on starting this the first week in February. The opening scene has a video that I will post as an alternative for the students. Students are to make predictions on three questions based upon this opening scene. Please try and stop after this opening picture scene and have the students make predictions. They will want you to read on but getting these predictions early will help motivate the students to really think. Most likely you will have to show the video twice or follow it up with the actual book because the students really get hooked.
It is up to each individual teacher if they want their students to post on their own or go ahead as a class. In my eyes, it would be nice to see what each student is thinking and try to create a lot of discussion amongst the students.
Finally, spread the word. I can promise you it will last through the entire book this year, with at least one post per week. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via comments on the blog or my email,

The boy kept looking behind because he didnt know who he was and the old man kept looking at him.the old man is maybe a guy whoworks at a shop and the role he plays is maybe a manuger.The importance of the clock in the story is people need to no what the time is in the story and to hide if he has to.
