Day 3: "To Build a Fire"

During today's close reading, students will take a deeper look at London's use of sentence structure within "To Build a Fire." Students will need a basic understanding of simple, compound, and complex sentence structures prior to the lesson, so they are able to address the purpose of London using each type of structure. This lesson will provide students with a better understanding of how London develops conflict and anticipation into the plot line through his use of varied sentence structure.
