First, we will go over the questions. When your name is drawn, please respond with your answer to the question we are currently discussing. One speaker at a time is the expectation for whole-class discussions.
By the way, a good "allusion" in the story is "He threw away his red-rubber ball nose to reveal a man that would have awed Thor, the God of thunder," -an allusion to Greek mythology.
"Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in."
As always, we will pre-read the questions before reading the article so that we can annotate with purpose. Think about ways in which reading and annotating are different when infographics are involved.
What other words do you know that contain these prefixes?
Let's draw names. When your name is drawn, read the word, part of speech, and definition. The next name will read the sentence. And so on, and so forth.
