Our goal today is to examine the strengths and weaknesses of an argument.
Go to Google Classroom.
We will read the first “Point” as a class and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the argument. As we read, we will fill out the KWL chart (attached). Then you will read the second article “Counter Point” on your own and finish the KLW chart. When you’ve submitted the assignment, complete the reflection.
Please see Google Classroom for details. We are finishing up our work on Examining Both Sides of an Issue and then working on character concepts for our game pitches.
Yesterday some of you were revising and resubmitting your opinion paragraphs while others were writing the midterm. Today you should all be working on the assignment called Examining Both Sides on Google Classroom.
Before we dive into that though, we’ll have some reading time followed by a discussion about identifying the main idea and supporting details.
Some students are writing their midterm today while others will be working on an assignment on Google classroom.
We are having our midterm today. Please make sure you have your bookclub novels to read if you finish early.
We’ll start today by discussing the midterm expectations. Then you’ll have time for your opinion paragraphs and silent reading.
Today is our second literature circle day. I will take a few minutes to review the expectations with you and then you will get into your groups. Remember, the main thing you are being marked on is your ability to talk about your book.
You will have a self-evaluation to complete at the end.
Then you will finish your opinion paragraphs.
FYI Midterms start next Friday. Our midterm is on Monday April 16. I will discuss what you need to review on Monday.
Today we’ll begin with 15 minutes of silent reading and then time for you to complete your book club role including your discussion questions. Then you will have time to finish your opinion paragraphs. These are due today.
We’ll start today with 20 minutes of silent reading and then head down to the Inquiry Den to work on our opinion paragraphs. Please see Google Classroom for more details.
Today we’re going to do an overhaul on the book clubs. Some of you will continue with your original book. Some of you are doing a different book. Some of you are continuing with independent book clubs. Others are going to move into a supported book club. Our next book club will be this Thursday so it’s important that you know your role.
After we do some work on our book clubs we are going to move on to our opinion paragraphs which we started on Thursday.
