On Wednesday, we began to read a short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, "The Minister's Black Veil". So far, we have discovered that Hawthorne has a knack for eloquence, meaning that he had excellent word choice. Students highlighted unfamiliar words so that we, as a class, could look them up with VISUAL THESAURUS. Of course, after determining the meaning of each word, we can better understand the meaning of the story.
Keep in mind that there are many steps that our brains work through to fully process information. BE SURE to make yourself go deeper into the process.
Have a great day!
