    10. September 14, 2010Silent Focus • Listen/ Read the poem, “If” by Rudyard Kipling • What do you think this poem is about in your own words? Why do you think that? Do you agree or disagree with the message of the poem? Why? What questions do you have or sections do you not understand ? Borrow a line and try to write your own poem.

    11. Agenda • Word Power Session 1A- Practice • Grammar ML #1- Subjects and Verbs • Reading ML #3- Good readers ask questions while they read, and try to answer them. • 9th Grade- “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell • 11th Grade- Anthem- by Ayn Rand • Closing/ Homework

    12. Reading ML #3- Good readers ask questions and try to answer them as they read • Sometimes it is more important to ask really good questions than it is to have the “right” answer. These questions spark the most discussion, and open our minds to new ideas. • Good readers also notice when they find the answers to the questions they’re asking.

    13. When we answer questions, we can use this code: • BK = questions that are answered in the text • I = questions that can be inferred from the text • D = questions that can be answered by further discussion • RS = questions that require further research in order to be answered • Huh? or C = questions that signal confusion • Let’s look at an example, and then practice.

    14. My questions Answers- found or inferred BK = questions that are answered in the text I = questions that can be inferred from the text D = questions that can be answered by further discussion RS = questions that require further research in order to be answered Huh? or C = questions that signal confusion Q & A

September 15, 2010Silent Focus • Listen/ Follow-along as I read a non-fiction article from Sunday’s Detroit Free Press: a column by Mitch Albom comparing America’s youth to Korea’s youth. • Write about: What do you think about this article? What responsibility do you have as students towards your education? What responsibility do your parents have? What about the government? What do you think the U.S.’s philosophy on education should be? Why? Does it need to change? Why?
