Yesterday, we read a fascinating story by Isaac Asimov, called "The Fun They Had." Now, today, we'll have some fun furthering our own visions of SCHOOL, and practicing the art of short fiction.
First off, welcome to the library! Today, we'll have the chance to practice our word of the day right here.
Click on this link to read about what an ANTAGONIST is in literature, as well as find some great examples.
Now, think about the Plot Chart we explored in class two days ago, as well as our word of the day yesterday, PROTAGONIST.
