Sorry for the last minute change of plans. My youngest son is sick and can't go to school, so I need to be home with him today. Instead of having our graded discussion today, you will work with a partner to complete a close read on a passage from the chapter we read for today. Close reading analysis is a challenging task that we haven't practiced a ton this year, so it's okay if you work with a partner to get the work done. Just make sure you have a claim statement, evidence, and the chart filled out by tomorrow.
We will move our discussion of pages 42-75 to tomorrow, so make sure you've done that reading and completed the log. If you run out of things to do in class, go ahead and get a start on the next reading assignment, which is listed in yesterday's post.
Email if this doesn't make sense or if you have questions. I'll be able to check my email throughout the day and hopefully get back to you in time.
:) Mrs. Elgammal
