So today we read a new story called "Passing Days". If you weren't in class you can find it in the shared folder for your writing group. Each group read the story on their own and then 'chatted' about it in the chat window on the doc. I didn't let them talk or sit together they had to type all their comments and communicate about the theme and evidence only through the chat window. Most groups did a great job and liked working this way. If you missed class you missed out.
