In class today, lots of paperwork was passed out and stored back in to student's workbook. We proceeded to discuss our learning targets-close reading, getting the "gist" of an excerpt, gathering important details to determine main idea, and being prepared to collaborate with peers.
The students started reading the text, "The Hero's Journey." They recorded the gist in their booklets after conducting a close read. Students prepared for their second read and started to annotate.
Homework-Article of the week. If the students need me to provide them with an article, please go to the Google Classroom and students may enter their assignments that way.
