It is my pleasure to announce that all DBQ essays are read and graded. I was so impressed with the essays in both homerooms. The students did a fantastic job. I will be excited to see how they do on our next DBQ–it will be when we get back from break. We will be working on it in both the Reading, ELA and Social Studies classroom.
In Mrs. Bintliff’s homeroom– We will continue to work on finding evidence. Because of the Spelling Bee, we will be watching Coraline on Tuesday. If we do not finish on Tuesday, then we will finish on Wednesday. Our next genre in humor. We will begin our humor book-the title will be announced this week.
In Mrs. Kellam’s homeroom–We will finish Coraline and hopefully begin the movie. We will begin reading Titanic: Voices from the Disaster. We had some challenges last week with me being at a training and students having to finish their TFKs.
In Mrs. Bintliff’s homeroom–Students will choose one of their Narrative Writings and begin the process of preparing it for being published. They will have to produce their pre-writing. They will then work on a rough draft that contains all of the elements that we discussed in class over the last few weeks.
In Mrs. Kellam’s homeroom–Students will research their RBQs and begin their essays answering their questions. The essays will be written in class and do soon after we get back from break. I will give a more concrete date after I see how our research progresses this week.
