Welcome to 4th Quarter!
Week of April 2-5:
We will write a 3rd quarter reflection piece and then continue a series of practice writing responses. Students will identify the type of writing structure, organize and draft.
Week of April 8-12:
Students will finish the writing response started last week. We will then do a variety of short writing pieces connected to starting To Kill a Mockingbird in language arts. We will also support the new writing piece (argument/persuasion) started in language arts.
Week of April 15-19:
Students will be participating in some informal writing responses geared to To Kill a Mockingbird. We will mostly be exploring character development and plot, the move to higher-level thinking responses.
Week of April 22-26:
We will continue to work on TKAM responses, building to a more formal response starting at the end of the week. Students will "research" from novel and organize two literary responses with a choice of one to develop as a full writing piece. (Comparing characters OR analyzing a symbol or theme)
Week of April 29 - May 3rd:
Students are still working on "choice" literary responses from Part I of TKAM this week. (Comparing characters OR analyzing a symbol or theme)
