We've learned how to compare and contrast character traits, and today we're going to learn how to compare and contrast setting


Compare and contrast settings.

A setting is where and when a story takes place. A setting can also affect the mood, or tone, of a story. Many stories often feature more than one setting at different moments throughout the story. Such different settings can sometimes change the mood of a story, either greatly or slightly.

Today's assignment

We'll read some more Frindle today (we're almost done!) Then, we're going to answer some questions on a google doc, which you can find at this link. Answering the questions on the google doc will be a little different than what you're used to, but I will show you how to do it!

What you'll be graded on

  1. Have you answered the question?
  2. Did you write at least three sentences?
What should my answer look like?

Check out Christina's outstanding answer from Thursday.
