Progression – Today you will begin to work with phrases and clauses, in order to learn when and how to use, semi-colons, colons, and commas. Take the pretest on page 295 in your notebook. Elect a team leader. The team leader will see me for the answer key when you have all finished. If we have computers today, send me your score and any questions you have about what you are about to learn using the Google protocol, keyword :confused.

Inquiry/Research - This week you are going to take what you learned from your webquest and either create a group animoto presentation or a prezi to present on our next A day. On our next A day, each of the five groups will present their prezis or animotos for a grade.

Keyword: 1960s

Peer share

Peer Share

  • If you have had your Inquiry/Research Day – share the results of your webquest. Your next step is to create a Prezi or animoto presentation to share what you learned with Mr. Logan and the class.

  • If you have not had your Inquiry/Research Day Yet – log into Google drive and share your “ending” reflection with all members of your group and allow editing. Peer edit together each assignment, one student at a time until the group has collectively read each other’s responses.

  • If there is time for another round of peer sharing, share your “newsweek” assignments. Your next group day will be writing conferencing with Mr. Logan.

  • Go to Progressive Worksheets – choose ”In the News” directions, effective 10-28-2013. These are your directions for next cycle’s news story. They are due on your next peer share day and will be saved as keyword “newsweek2.”
