I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
We started off with 15 minutes of reading (in lit circle books). Next, we reviewed the concept of active sentences by watching a video and revising the five sentences at the end of the video for practice in creating clearer, stronger, active writing. Then, I showed students a typical EOC prompt for writing analysis of a poem. We used that prompt to create claim statements for one of the Holocaust poems we've been studying this week, and students continued by writing an ACES paragraph to prove the claim. I collected the paragraphs at the end of class to provide some feedback in preparation for the EOC.
Homework: Continue completing reading and written assignments for the literature circle book. All written work is due on Monday, 5/22.
