SIFT Chart Details

Since I am getting a lot of questions regarding the SIFT chart, here are some clarifications:
1. It will be due December 8th or 9th (depending on ODD or EVEN day).
2. You need to have a total of 20 entries, which include the page number and chapter where you found the quote. The quote also needs to be in the correct category (Symbol, Imagery, Figurative Language, Tone/Theme).
3. Even though it is not a requirement to be typed, points will be given to those who type it.

Extra credit opportunity!
I will give extra credit to students for creating small posters with our SAT words. You must email, post a comment, or speak to me to let me know which set of five words you will do. Do not include the definitions. Include the words with a picture. All posters must be turned in before Christmas break.


  1. I would like to do the "b" sat words for the extra credit.
