This week, we’re working on standard ELACC8W2.a, which says ELACC8W2.a I can introduce a topic clearly, previewing what is to come, organize information into topical groups, and I can use text features when useful for understanding.
In Advanced-TAG classes, we’re converting a section of
by Elie Wiesel into a newspaper. Each student will be responsible for a section of the newspaper. I will upload the files as soon as I get home and can save them easily as .PDFs.
In the Media Class, we’re doing the same project, only we’re converting one of my favorite stories in the lit anthology, “The Treasure of Lemon Brown” by Walter Dean Myers, to a newspaper.
Next week, we will have an altered schedule because we’ll be taking the ITBS. Make sure to get plenty of rest and eat breakfast. 🙂
