Friday, we’ll be taking a unit test on the novel Monster. The novel has been an exciting ride, and I think we have all enjoyed hearing Steve’s story in prison and through his trial. I highly recommend reviewing all notes that we took and all of the worksheets that we completed on the novel, as well as using some online resources that might remind you of some of the elements of the novel. For example, Quizlet, this Monster Guide, or the Testimony Quiz. This is the Jeopardy game we’ll be playing in class on Thursday. Please click the link and use it to help you review. I will also try to email out the questions we reviewed last week, which might be helpful for you to review as well. Keep an eye out for that!
We have also been spending some time working on particular skills, and it would be beneficial to reflect on your ability to:
-analyze the use of word choice to convey a specific message
-use details to support an interpretation of a text
-analyze how lines can impact character development and plot
The test will include multiple choice questions, true/false questions, short answer questions, and one extended response question involving THEME. Good luck reviewing, and good luck on the test!
