Article of the Week
Students will be reading the article: Half of American Teenagers Volunteer, Largely Because Their Friends Do. As students read, they are asked to make notes (annotations) in the margin. They were taught how to write annotations in class, and the article includes instructions for writing notes in the margin. After reading, students are asked to complete 4 question boxes. This assignment is DUE: Thursday, Sept. 19.
We will continue reading and discussing Running Out of Time. Our focus this week will be on chapters 6-8. Some skills we are working on in class are vocabulary, context clues, and comprehension.
