Objective: I can cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain. (RI11-12.1). Agenda:
Entry Task: Review the Table of Contents on the board in comparison with your own journal. Review your rubric and how many tallies you have for vocabulary (should be 4-6) and quotes (should 2-3). What should your focus be as you read today?
Select a coloring picture if it helps you to focus during a longer reading.
Follow along to Ch. 11 “Chesapeake Beach” (31:04) p. 103-116
Review the rubric and accomplish one of the following from Chapter 11:
Find 1 of the vocabulary words from throughout the book (focusing on words you struggle with), copy the sentence and page number, highlight the word, then write your own sentence using the word correctly.
Find a quote from your reading that is thought-provoking and write a thoughtful reaction filling the page with your thoughts and ideas. Images included enhance the ideas.
Exit Task: Look back at your rubric and tally for either the vocabulary word or quote you found in order to keep track of what you have accomplished so far. Replace the rubric as a bookmark in your journal, so you can reference it frequently.
