Monday we will be completing our weekly challenge in class, where we discuss a topic and practice pulling evidence from sources and analyzing them. Monday's weekly challenge and the note sheet are here:
Tuesday Mrs Coreson our library will be teaching students some research skills for using World Book, Newsela, and our classroom textbooks for research on our GRAPES project. I will post notes here at the end of the day!
Wednesday we will have a mini lesson on using cornel notes, we will use this format for our notes:
After the mini lesson, students will spend the rest of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday doing research in their groups. They have created a calendar with their own research schedules, and I will be supporting them. Some great sites to check out if you are working on this at home are to go through the Rosemont Ridge Library Homepage, then click the yellow button for "Research Help" which takes you here: https://www.wlwv.k12.or.us/Page/15423
We will use Newsela and World Book online but not OSLIS.
This week we are doing a lot of getting to know each other and our routines, and we will be completing a creative writing piece called "Where I am From?" to build community in our classroom before we jump into our first unit.
We have several weekly routines, a Weekly Challenge, which will happen for the first time on Wednesday the 4th.
Students will be reading a piece of news or interpreting a TED Talk to practice their skills in gathering evidence.
