HOMEWORK THIS WEEK
There is another Achieve 3000 article assigned to our nightly homework in place of reading log. This is to reinforce the skills we are simultaneously practicing in class in order to increase our Lexile Levels . Please note, this article DOES NOT take the place of the 2 Achieve 3000 articles they are required to do per week as homework ON THE COMPUTER. Students will do a total of 3 articles per week (1 that is printed and attached to homework, and 2 online). The printed article will be broken up as follows:
(Mon) Day 1: Read and annotate the article (using close reading marks)
(Tue) Day 2: Activity questions #1-4
(Wed) Day 3: Activity questions #5-8
(Th) Day 4: Thought question using the R.A.C.E. model
An example of the Achieve article we did together this week was sent home in homework folder today. Please refer to it for proper annotating and constructed response using the R.A.C.E. model.
*Please note there were many students who did not annotate their article correctly in this weeks homework. Students are not to just underline information, they are expected to find the main idea, circle words they do not know, write their thoughts in the margins, provide a brief summary of each paragraph in the margins (one or two words), write notes about what they are reading and what connections they are making while reading. Annotating is the way students can make sense of the text in their own words.
Attached to the homework is the information needed for the speech that students must have it written by Thursday, February 5th. You will find the prompt, rules, important information on how students will be scored and a graphic organizer.
