#mbedchatblog #mbedu #engchat #readingtweets 

Reading Reflection: 

Today, you will using the format of Twitter to compose “Tweets” about the post it notes you took while reading on Friday. Your reading tweets will contain 140 characters or less – including spaces and punctuation. In total you will create 5 “tweets:

– An intro tweet that gives the title of the book, the page that you are currently on, and your initial reaction to the book:

The Girl i/t Steel Corset (203) my 1rst steampunk book. I enjoy the dark mystery- great change from the Dystopian fic I’ve been reading #intro

-Your second tweet will discuss a question (?) you had while reading:

?- Is Finley Jayne the only character with superpowers? My guess= no, there will be a group of character to soon be introduced #question

 
-Your third tweet will discuss a comment you had while reading:

Favourite quote so far ” ___________________” (pg 123) #comment

-Your fourth tweet will discuss a prediction (!) your had while reading:

!- This is definitely going to be part of series/trilogy. Too many characters, to much conflict going on to all be resolved in 1 book. #prediction

-Your last tweet will ask an open-ended, discussion question for your classmates.

Anybody else read any steampunk? Or tired of dystopian fiction? The Hunger Games was great, but I’m tired of all the copycat books. #discuss

You will need to post all five of your tweets, but you should also read and respond to what your classmates post.

  3. I haven't read this particular book but I do know that the concept of losing someone you love and heartbreak are two very real ideas to many teenagers. My best guess is that youth enjoy the thrill of reading a novel that incorporates love, heartache, and the inevitable death. It's all about the tragedy and the fairy tale love.

    @tarynlucas : I think it's so popular because it causes so many problems in society and is interesting to see from our point of view without that form of government.

  17. @alyshacho I think cliques are basically the same thing as gangs but the difference is that gangs are associated more with drugs and things like that. when I think cliques I think of high school and how we all seem to know each other but not like the people that we talk to on a regular basis.

  25. Art of racing I/t rain (53). Deep book, makes you think about life. It seems like it’s going to be tear jerker. Also like the writing #intro

    What will happen to Enzo and Denny’s relationship when his wife dies? Will it change as much as when she came into there lives? #question

    I have heard lots of amazing things about this novel and I was not disappointed, great read so far. Love the writing style! #comment

    When Enzo dies he will come back as a man. I think at the end of the book it will be implied not said what happens to him #prediction

    Do people and animals have souls? Do both or neither? In the book it’s made very clear and the author thinks dogs do. #discuss
