English 9H

15 Sep

Today we continued to discuss the characters’ actions and motivations from Of Mice and Men. We also discussed the definitions of a topic, a theme, and a claim.

topic: a word or phrase to describe the content of a story
theme: a message or lesson about the topic
claim: a stance based on the topic and theme

A well-written claim should:
1. be a complete sentence.
2. be a universal truth.
3. take a debatable stance.

Homework:
1. Complete the classwork from today.
2. Prepare for the summer reading test on Monday.
