With our new reading unit we will be structuring the lesson differently. Today we introduced the new novel and the project that goes with it. Tomorrow (Tuesday 11/8) we will be focusing on the recipe memoir. Students will use their interview to create and outline for their memoir. This will help students organize this information when they are writing paragraphs. Thursday 11/10 students will be in discussion groups. To prepare they need to complete the assigned reading, write a summary and a discussion question. The discussion will be assessed by students using the rubric in their folder. All work is in the grey paper folder that will travel between home school, hopefully helping students keep track of all the parts of the reading. The first Bloom Folder project will be due next Friday 11/18. - I must be from levels 1-3.
I'm excited to begin my 7th year teaching at Coonley School. I've been teaching for over 20 years. I love creating projects and lessons that challenge my students.
