Hello again Students and Parents,
Wednesday in Advanced-TAG classes, we had our second Socratic Seminar based on an interview transcript with Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor. This will help prepare students for reading Night, which we’ll start before the quarter is up. 🙂 I think this one is one you could read together. It’s intense. It’s historical. It’s one person’s true-life-experience.
I’m sending home permission slips for Shelfari.com, but here’s a copy in case one doesn’t make it home tonight.
Wednesday in my Media ELA class, we began planning for our first public service announcement. We watched this one: as an example. I explained there are two purposes of a PSA:
1. To inform the audience about an important issue
2. To convince the audience to act differently or do something
We’re going to back up a little today and work in groups to write our scripts, step-by-step.
Having a good year! I hope you are. 🙂
