Quizlet for A Place to Call Home

Have you checked your grades on Schoology?

Focus for the Week

Literature: I am trying to make students more responsible for reading and learning the material on their own.

Students will be reading Bonne Annee themselves. I will be reteaching as needed.

2nd Journal Entry: CANCELED AS OF NOW (I have too much that I have been required to cover. Sorry.)

Stations: Writing: Claim, Cite, Clarify in the guiding questions for our stories.

Reading: Achieve

1. Write the 1st poll question in a few sentences.

2. Read the article and answer the questions. I will take the first score.

3. Answer the after poll question in a few sentences

4. DO NOT do the Thought Question.

Instead, do the Schoology questions.

Be sure to rephrase the question in the answer!

Grammar: I will be getting to grammar soon. Things have been added to my plate lately.

Vocabulary: Vocabulary.com will continue as planned.

Be sure to do the Schoology assignment.

Requirements for Lesson Planning

Small Groups: During stations, students are working individually on assignments on their level. I pull students into a small group to help them as they work on these assignments. Stations are still a work in progress.

Vocabulary: We are using Vocabulary.com and Quizlet to practice vocabulary. Each story we read will have 11 words which we will practice on Vocabulary.com. These words are academic or domain-specific vocabulary.

Standards:

CC.8.L.4.a Vocabulary Acquisition and Use: Use context (e.g., the overall meaning of a sentence or paragraph; a word’s position or function in a sentence) as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.

CC.8.L.4.d Vocabulary Acquisition and Use: Verify the preliminary determination of the meaning of a word or phrase (e.g., by checking the inferred meaning in context or in a dictionary).

CC.8.L.6 Vocabulary Acquisition and Use: Acquire and use accurately grade-appropriate general academic and domain-specific words and phrases; gather vocabulary knowledge when considering a word or phrase important to comprehension or expression.

Literature

This week we are reading an informative text.

We will be focusing on pulling information from the text for the performance task: Immigrants face challenges and make adjustments.

CC.8.R.I.5 Craft and Structure: Analyze in detail the structure of a specific paragraph in a text, including the role of particular sentences in developing and refining a key concept.

CC.8.R.I.2 Key Ideas and Details: Determine a central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to supporting ideas; provide an objective summary of the text.
