STAY OPEN TO NEW IDEAS AS YOU READ
Readers, tonight you should devote a good amount of time to read your historical fiction books. As you read, keep asking yourself, “What is the book really about?” Remember to stay open to new ideas as you read, as you did in class. Even if these ideas may not seem connected to your interpretation of the story, take note of them. These new ideas may take you on a journey of thought in ways that will surprise you. These ideas may inspire you to change your mind about your interpretation, perhaps more than once.
Leave a little time at the end of your homework time to do a quick write. Choose one of the thought prompts, and then go! Write fast and furious. Fill an entire page and then another. Three minutes and you’re done!
Now read your quick write and star your best thoughts. Then use those thoughts to add to or change your interpretation.
