In your composition books, look over all of the changes and determine which ones you had control of (Voluntary) and which ones you had NO control of (Involuntary).
Create a T-chart and list as many Voluntary and Involuntary changes as possible.
Turn to your shoulder partner and share your changes with each other

Determine the following:
1) Are the changes really in the correct column.
2) Do you share any changes?
3) If your partner has a change that you have gone through, but haven't listed then copy it to add to your list.
In your composition books:
Choose one of your VOLUNTARY changes.
Now as you write, skipping a line between so that it is Double Spaced, explain what the change is, why you made the change, and the effect that it had on you.
Now, reread your quickwrite and check for parallel structure.
Walter needed to fill his life with activity. He also needed to fill it with talking and with dreaming.

- arranging words, phrases, and clauses in a series using the same grammatical structure to show that items are equally important

Character Presented in a Film Clip
This includes :
1) The character's appearance.
2) The character's actions.
3) What the character says.
4) What others say about the character.
We will be looking at the elements of characterization.

When the camera is someone else looking at Max that is objective camera view. What literary point of view is that?
Did you notice how the camera at times seemed to be looking through Max's eyes, and at other times it seemed to be someone else looking at Max?
Film Clips
Complete the chart I gave you as you watch the clips.
Vocabulary Notebook
We are reading...
Changes: Voluntary and Involuntary
Now go back through your writing. Read a sentence, then underneath it write something more to elaborate the sentence. After you are done with this sentence you will go to the next sentence and do the same thing.
