January 24

IRT: ~20 minutes
WNB: Article of the Week - "Nerd Alert: Reading Is Good for Your Health" (video connection: "Empathy")

Students handed in their quote mini-posters and 3-2-1 assignment.

Following independent reading time, I introduced the method for annotating and responding to articles of the week (posted in the About section on Classroom under Writer's Notebook). Students who didn't finish annotations or responses during class time will need to be sure to complete this before the next class period.

I briefly reviewed the timed writing assignment that is coming up on Thursday. We will discuss embedding quotes tomorrow.

Students used the remaining class time to begin working on group presentation project--they will be teaching an assigned lit term to the class.

I will be in my room during B block tomorrow if anyone needs to visit!
