Monday - Finish debate from Friday. Review journal assignment from over the weekend. Intro to Mark Twain's "Luck."
HW - Read and annotate "Luck"
Tuesday - Since the students have read and annotated "Luck," they will get into groups and answer plot development questions based on the short story. These questions will help the students prepare for their next class when they could possibly have a quiz and see very similar questions for another short story. After working in groups, we will come back together to review and make sure every one is feeling confident about the different aspects of plot development.
