Learning Log (optional)
Choose one of these:
Before and after
Sometimes what one person says can change the mood of one person or a whole group.
On page 57, Stanley says something that makes Zero smile and the other boys laugh. Then Mr. Pedanski says something that changes Zero's feelings.
Draw the group when Stanley makes his comment, and put STanley's words in a circle next to him as you'd see it in a comic strip [example placed here].
Make another drawing of the group when Mr. Pedanski says what he says, and Zero glares at him. Include details from the book.
Complete a quote analysis for each of these quotes from page 58:
"Even you, Zero. You're not completely worthless."
"I like to dig holes."
