Share your 500-word piece for today with the person next to you. After you read your partner’s essay, jot down some thoughts in response to these three questions:
- What would you like to know more about the primary text?
- What would you like to know more about the secondary text?
- What would you like to know more about how the author is trying to connect the two?
Return the piece with your comments to your partner. Chat for a bit about what you noticed or about any questions you might have.
