7th & 8th Grade (Week #7 – 10/19 to 10/25)

It’s getting close to time for us to wrap this project up with our book videos! Be aware that LeGrande students need to be reading, blogging, quizzing, reviewing and working on video production all at the same time! JCMS students, I’m sure Mrs. Martin has a project in mind for you, too!

Enough chit-chat though, let’s take a look at this week’s prompt!

  • Identify a significant conflict (AKA problem) contained in one of the books that you have read for the ERP. You may choose from the following types of conflict:
    • Man vs. Man
    • Man vs. Self
    • Man vs. Nature/Supernatural
    • Man vs. Society
  • Identify the title of the book that you have chosen to use for this response and describe the specifics of the conflict including the characters who are involved and their situation.

Check this space later for the Scoring Guide so that you can self-assess!
