In LA students are reading the novel Hatchet. Students are developing their comprehension by making connections, asking questions and picking meaningful passages to share. We have just begun the novel but already it is clear students are enjoying the adventure.
We also spent a bit more time today discussing the video, "To This Day". I encouraged them all to take a good long look at their role in making others feel less than worthy. It is never easy to be honest with the less than perfect parts of us.
1) LA - complete a short summary of chapters 3 & 4 for Hatchet
2) Grade 7s - study for Math test on Tuesday. All the students need to go over all the concepts by completing the chapter self test and review. I would also advise students go back in the chapter and practise all the concepts. After looking at a review today it is clear that a lot of studying still needs to happen.
3) Response "To This Day' - finalize your draft for Friday. You will be working closely with a peer to edit and receive feedback.
