Don’t forget! Chapters 7 and 8 jobs are due this Friday in class. I am making new bookmarks for you; until then, here are the descriptions of the responsibilities for each job:
The Artful Artist’s task is to choose an important or interesting scene from the reading, illustrate it and write a caption. Illustrations should be detailed and colored. Captions should be thoughtful, descriptive and written in complete sentences.
The Incredible Inquisitor’ task is to write 3-5 fat, juicy, double-double cheeseburger questions about the reading. Questions should spark discussion and cause the other members of the group to think. The Incredible Inquisitor never asks simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions.
The Summarizing Superstar’s task is to recap the events of the reading in 5-10 sentences. The Summarizing Superstar should give lots of details and explain what happened in his or her own words.
The Word Wizard’s task is to find 3-5 challenging or unfamiliar words and look up their definitions. Then, the Word Wizard will write a new sentence using each word that will help the group better understand the meaning of it.
