  • The class identified the theme of “He-y, Come On Ou-t!” and used evidence from the Details/What It Reveals Chart to support their theme statement.
  • The class broke into groups to answer varied questions regarding the text. Students who are absent on this day will need to complete the Close Read Questions (blue/green boxes) including following directions and writing notes in the margin in lieu of the teacher-generated questions.
  • Depending on time (due to early release) students worked on the following. There will be more time to complete both for A-day, due to Early Release:
    • Independent reading: “Teenagers and New Technology” in the Close Reader (use the index of authors and titles to find the page the text starts on) and following all directions for the Close Read (blue/green boxes) including following directions and writing notes in the margin.
    • Achieve 3000: “Storm Warnings on Cell Phones” (BR poll – Thought Question.) Remember, as an assigned Achieve article this requires the completion and submission of an Article Analysis Sheet. (I accept digital or printed copies.)
