Week at a Glance:

For the next couple of weeks, we will be reviewing concepts previously learned in preparation for the GA Milestones. Last week our focus was point of view.  This week our focus is argumentative writing.

Monday– “Catch-up day” since Ms. Colacicco was out on Friday. Students took a point of view quiz and finished the POV stations.

Tuesday– Students will review the steps of RACE and practice using a Pixar animation. After, students will review argumentative vocabulary and complete a “Gab and Go Claim” activity. Finally, students will read the below article on school lunch periods and practice finding a claim and evidence to support that claim.

Short lunch periods don’t serve students’ needs

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday- Students will participate in argumentative review stations. The stations will review argumentative vocabulary, how to correctly cite evidence in an argument, how to write an effective counter-claim, and how to draft a strong claim statement.

NO HOMEWORK THIS WEEK.

  • Weekly warm-up sheet
