A Memory Map is a type of storyboard or comic strip made up of pictures, commentary, and dialogue.
"Will they keep up with classwork, homework, and Edmodo?"
The day before the students start.
With just hours left before the start of a new school year I contemplate, with a touch of apprehension, if my students will be able to do it all.

"I love chocolate," remarked Ms. Garrett.
"Watch out!" screamed Deputy Bradley.
"Come here," Mom stated, "I need you."
"Wait," replied Travis, "where are we going?"
Let's look on p 19, line 6. What do you notice? How about on p 20, paragraph 6? What do you notice?
What else? How does it sound when we read it?
What would change if we took out the exclamation point? How about if we changed the word "shouted" to "said"?
Which do you prefer? Why?
Now look at paragraph 12. What is the dialogue tag? Is "said" vivid? What might be a better word? What do you notice about the punctuation? What are Katie's exact words? Would the meaning change if we moved the dialogue tag to the end of the quotation? If we removed the quotation marks would people realize these are Katie's exact words? How?
The Embedded Assessment will be at the end of the month said Ms. Garrett.
Is this correct? Is there something that is needed? What?
With your shoulder partner, partner A will write a response to the quotation that we just worked on, to be checked by partner B. Then you will switch roles.
On the rubric for the Embedded Assessment included in "few or no errors in spelling, punctuation, or capitalization" is using the correct punctuation in all of your dialogue in your personal narrative.
