This week, starting Wednesday, we will begin the writing portion of TNReady. Students will be asked to read a passage, annotate it, and write an essay based upon a prompt. Otherwise, we will be reading The Glory Field, and at some point later in the week I will give the kids a vocabulary quiz on the most recent list of words.
I will also be grouping our young scholars into debate teams.
We will continue to work with Bloom's Taxonomy, and students will learn to identify levels of thinking required to answer various text dependent questions. They will also be required to compose their own multi-level questions using different verbs from Bloom's Taxonomy. This skill, however, will not be formally assessed until next week. Thank you!
In My Class:
All students are expected to behave as scholars. I am dedicated to fostering a safe, supportive, fun, rigorous academic environment. I love my job, I love your kids, and I'm going to do my best for them. I expect them to do their best as well.
