Good morning! My mother-in-law snapped this photo of my husband and me in the hospital yesterday. He had a really good day yesterday; he napped on and off, but also got in some exercise (walking laps around the floor), and we ended up watching some Netflix together. Today they're going to bump him up to the next level of food -- goodbye, broth; hello, cream of chicken! We'll see how that goes.
At this point, your class should be back on track with the schedule in your "workbooks". If you were absent yesterday, feel free to ask the sub to replay Chapter Four. Your class can also ask for a replay if you feel like it would help you with the questions. You can listen along while you do your assignments.
**Make sure you're keeping up on charging the Kindles and laptops! :)
To Do List
1. Do warm-up questions #41-45. | Check your answers with the sub.
2. Take notes and add them to your Cornell notes pages. The notes are posted below.
3. Complete the two questions in your "workbook". Read each question carefully. All questions required DETAILED answers. If you need more space, feel free to complete your questions on notebook paper and staple the paper into your booklet (label your notebook paper with today's date just in case it would come loose).
4. If you need more to do, you can work on vocabulary for Chapter Five. If you are behind on work, today would be a good day to get caught up because you don't have as many questions to do as usual.
5. If you need more to do, feel free to work ahead and complete the vocabulary (definitions) for Chapter Five.
Have a wonderful day today! Stay warm! :)
conflict - any struggle against opposing forces; usually, the main character struggles against
some other force. Conflict is what drives each and every story.
- Without conflict, characters have no reason to grow.
Ex. Buck's conflicts with the humans, other dogs, and challenges presented by the
environment of the Yukon Territory are causing him to grow and change as a
character. He would be the same dog he was in Chapter One if none of this had
happened to him.
Types of Conflict: 1. man vs. man ("man" just represents the main character, so Buck
in a conflict against another dog is actually man vs. man conflict
because it is two characters in conflict against each other)
2. man vs. self (overcoming an internal problem or challenge)
3. man vs. nature (overcoming challenges caused by nature such as
storms, rough weather, or surviving in the outdoors)
4. man vs. society (rebelling against the structure of the society that
one lives in)
Ex. In your notes, write down one example of "man vs. man" conflict from the novel and one example of "man vs. nature" conflict.
