Inter-Logic: Ms. Ryan will be beginning the day by going over the chapters that students were
to have read a while ago but were not discussed last class due to timing. Then, once we are
caught up, I will begin my text graffiti activity to ease us into discussing chapters 24-28 of To
Kill a Mockingbird. After we discuss these responses and the plot as an entire class, students will
use the RAFT activity to better understand the events of this section of the book by looking at it
from a new perspective. Next class, students will have finished the last three chapters of the
book.
