Scribe: Period 5- October 11, 2012

Today we have a new project: Dissecting brains!

We work collaboratively, and each person in a group gets a character. We have to divide the character’s brain into four separate regions based on what they think about or like. The project is due October 23.

Overview of the project:
Step 1:
Brainstorm what you think the different regions of this character's brain would be like.  In other words, what does the character like? Dislike?  Think about?  A minimum of four regions for each character.

Step 2:
Decide how much of the character's brain should be allotted to each section.  If a character likes or thinks about something a lot, this region should be large.

Step 3:
Color code each region of the brain and make a detailed label for each region.  Describe the region in your own words for each section.  Include one quote from the novel for each section that supports your decision.
