A Glimpse into Next Week in English

Periods 1,2, and 7: Week of February 10th through 14th

The Week Ahead

Monday-I will be at a professional development session. Students will practice the skill we learned on Friday (identifying and correcting inappropriate shifts in verb tense).

Tuesday- We'll practice editing student work for inappropriate shifts in verb tense. In addition, we'll conduct a close reading of Mildred H. Taylor's acceptance speech for the 1997 Alan Award. Taylor is the author of the novel we'll be reading: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

Wednesday- Students will work collaboratively to read and analyze short non-fiction and picture book historical texts to learn important historical background for Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

Thursday- Students will synthesize the historical background information they learned yesterday to come up with a timeline of events leading up to and during the setting of Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

Friday- We will be starting our novel as a class!
