A Wrinkle in Time 2014

This week we've watched the movie of A Wrinkle in Time. As you have seen, the producers made a number of changes from the book. Choose at least two of the following three questions to answer in your comment. Be sure to use acceptable punctuation and capitalization in your comment.

1. What character was the most changed in the movie?  Were the changes related to appearance or personality or both?  Did the change help the movie or not?

2. Name an event that was added or greatly changed for the movie. How did this change effect the story? Do you think this was a good decision or not and why?

3. At the end of the movie, it appears that Meg has defeated the Black Thing on Camazotz, at least. How do you feel about that ending? Do you think that is what the book describes? Why or why not?

Using Verb Tenses

For Monday, you are to write a short 3-paragraph paper. In this paper, you will use past, present, and future verb tenses as you describe different activities you are involved in.  I will be grading this for using the correct tense, adding good details, and making strong word choices. 
Next week we will make Vokis like the one on the right using this paper. Be ready!!
