Want to read and respond to a good book? Below are 3 books that are sure to please. Come check one out from Mr. Miller and read it. Then talk to Mr. Miller about a response project that you would like to create for the book.
Hoot by Carl Hiaansen
The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau (Caution: It is the first of a series and you are likely to get hooked!)
Did you know that you can turn writing into Mr. Miller at any time during the school year? That’s right! If you have a piece that you would like feedback on, simply turn a copy of it into Mr. Miller’s mailbox in the office. Be specific about what you would like feedback on. For example, you might leave a sticky note on the work that reads: Mr. Miller, I would like for you to give me feedback on figurative language. This will give us a focal point with which to work. Some focal point ideas would be: paragraphing, metaphors, sentence structure, ideas, research (for non-fiction), plot, etc.
