HW reminders: none!
Agenda: Warm-up: PEA paragraph--this is your third notebook check for the month!
The desert functions as an important symbol in this story. What does the desert symbolize and how do you know what you know? First, brainstorm ideas with a group no larger than three. Together, write a possible POINT for your body paragraph. Be prepared to share this.
On your own: Write a paragraph where you make a specific claim about what the desert symbolizes (Point), you find a direct piece of evidence to support it (Evidence), analyze your piece of evidence (Analysis), and explain how it proves your claim (Link to your point).
