Week of 9/28-10/2
Destiny Catalog System
Destiny also allows students to search for books that are in our school library. A feature called Destiny Quest shows popular books and new arrivals in our library which could help students prepare for which books they would like to check out next.
Below are pictures of students having discussions about a short story that they read. We use a cooperative learning structure called Talking Chips to equalize participation in the discussion.
This week students worked on creating catchy leads to hook their readers.
Students read their lead ideas to classmates to hear which one they liked best.
Getting feedback on which lead to use for their personal narrative.
