IXL Standards: T.7, T.8, T.10, T.12
"I Can" Statement: I can use text features to comprehend technical texts
What will we learn? This week, we will be working to compare and contrast three types of writing: Poetry, Prose, and Drama. Students will mostly be "diving in" to poetry elements and analyzing the poetry genre this week. Of the three, Poetry will, more than likely, become the text students interact with on a regular basis and we will be giving them the tools to do that successfully this week.
