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 your rubric; how many quotes/vocabulary do you have? You need 5 quotes and 10 vocabulary. Today and tomorrow are our last in-class reading days.
Reminder--your journal is due at the end of the week; be working on it while we are listening.
Follow along to Ch. 17 “The Stampede Trail” (34:16)
Review the rubric and accomplish BOTH of the following from Chapter 17:
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 BOTH 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.
