Friday was a mixed bag lesson where each class had a slightly different experience based on their lesson needs:
- First periodreviewed conclusion techniques discussed in Tuesday’s lesson. This class also dissected a writing prompt (see below) using TAP (we left the last “P” for later). The students are to complete this for homework.
- Writing Prompt:
- Writing Situation: Most families assign chores to their children. Families need to work together, and having the children of the house help out teaches responsibility. However, many children and teens object to having these chores imposed upon them. What is your opinion?
- Directions for Writing: Do you think that children should have assigned chores to do at home, or do you think you have enough to do already? Write an essay to convince the adults in your family of your point of view regarding the children and teens being required to do chores at home. Be clear in your opinion, and use specific details and examples to support your ideas.
- Writing Prompt:
- Second period took time to revisit the computer lab in order to finish the SRI. The students who finished then began work dissecting the prompt above using TAP(P).
- Sixth period had the opportunity to briefly visit the Book Fair which was only in our Media Center for one day. Upon returning from the Media Center, sixth period completed the notes on conclusion strategies from Tuesday’s lesson.
- Should there have been more time slots available, the other class periods would have also attended.
- Seventh period completed notes on conclusion strategies from Tuesday’s lesson.
