We spent the first 5 minutes of class completing a mindfulness exercise when then did a 5 minute Quick Write which they shared with a partner. We discussed the comprehension questions from the poem Select Samaritan found on page 308.  I then had students copy notes on Louis Carrol, the author of the poem Jabberwocky.  Students spent the remainder of the class working on the questions.  A copy of the notes and questions is attached.
