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: Pick up the Table of Contents; as you listen, number your pages and the Table of Contents, so it is clear to both you and your teacher where each item is in your journal. Today is our last in-class reading day!
Reminder--your journal is due at the end of the week; be working on it while we are listening.
Follow along to Ch. 18 “The Stampede Trail” (29:50)
Review the rubric and accomplish BOTH of the following from Chapter 18:
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: If you do not have 5 quotes and 10 vocabulary, you should use access time tomorrow to make sure this part of your journal is caught up. Replace the rubric as a bookmark in your journal, so you can reference it frequently.
