Olympic Reading Challenge—http://www.cobblearning.net/readingchallenge/
Those who were absent for the argument test or the pronoun pretest may come in before school Wednesday and/or Friday to make them up.
Students who want extra time to work on their essays may come in before school FRIDAY morning. They must check-in with study hall prior to 8:20 in order to be let back to the room.
This week, students will be working through the writing process for an argument essay at their own pace. Below are the steps that will be completed prior to the end of class on Friday.
- Read and annotate 3 texts in the SpringBoard textbook. One will be done as a class using the document camera; two will be done independently. As we annotate, we will be looking for evidence to support the prompt.
- Graphic Organizer–Students will use the provided graphic organizer to help structure their writing, include all of the required elements, etc. Since the graphic organizer is completed using complete sentences, this can serve as a rough draft. Students will be able to use resources-notes, model essays, etc. to guide their writing.
- Editing and Revising-Students will edit and revise the sentences on the graphic organizer before writing a final draft. Students will also have the rubric to guide them as they edit and revise.
- Final Draft-Students will take what is on the graphic organizer as their rough draft and will write a final draft in pen. This will count as a summative grade in the grade book.
