First we did our do now's. We opened up Quizlet in the City of Ember 1 and learned some new words that we will find in the book. After that we shared with the person sitting next to us what dystopia and Utopia. We watched the beginning of Wall.E and discussed why was that scene related to dystopia. We watched another scene of Wall.E and discussed what were some other elements that were dystopians in that piece. Sophie thought that one negative effect was that they were too antisocial even though they were all together. One Dysthopean Novel that was famous was the Hunger Games because it looked pretty cool but it really wasn't that cool. We are now moving on to Quote chalk talk  that is when we write thoughts of a quote that is here in the table . People had many ideas to share. We had many different quotes and many different ideas about some quotes that are in the book. One quote I saw was: " The main thing to do is to pay attention. Pay close attention to everything, notice what no one else notices. Then you'll know what no one else knows, and that's always useful." and it got many good questions and responses to the questions asked. We stared(★) questions that we thought were good questions. 

We got our City of Ember books and we are going to start reading the first part. After the map and the contents there was the introduction.  We shared some questions that we had about the book and the introduction. For the last 5 minutes of class we read a little bit of the fist chapter. The class was dismissed.
