Notebook #7 - Response to an excerpt from Between the World and Me. A copy of the excerpt is attached.

Current events share. Students brought two current event articles on a social justice topic to share with their group.

Today we focused on the topic of racism. Students read a four page informational text on Jim Crow laws and highlighted the main idea and sub topics that supported the main idea. They also provided a short summary of what they learned.

We also listened to the last 1/3 of Martin Luther King's speech and identified author's craft tools used to make the speech effective. Students also received a list of literary devices as a reference through the year.
