After the assessments…

Note:

Reassessments on NoRedInk can be done next week:

  • recess on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday
  • Community Time on Monday
  • or after school on Tuesday.

Make an appointment with Doc for reassessment.

Remember, vocabulary reassessment is not available.


After you finish your assessments…

Go to GoogleClassroom. Read “Slavery Comes to America” and annotate using Notice and Note Nonfiction Signposts ~ find this article and submit it on GoogleClassroom.

Notice and Note Signposts for Non-Fiction:

  • Word Gaps — What words or phrases do I need to look up?
  • Numbers and Stats — Why does the author use these numbers or amounts? What do these numbers help me see?
  • Contrasts and Contradictions — What surprised me? What are the differences between two or more perspectives? Why do the differences matter?

Then, explore and examine more resources on “The Fiery Trial.”

As you explore and examine, look for Power LinesRecord anything that you find intriguing or disturbing — anything that resonates with you or makes you stop and think — anything you think is beautiful, dangerous, inspirational, scary, confusing, chilling, or uplifting.  Add the Power Lines you find to the collection in our classroom.

Collect those Power Lines — words, phrases, sentences, quotations — for your final found poetry! Click here for the found poetry assignmentCopy the language word for word in the order or in the sequence you find it. Cite the source informally, meaning somehow note where you’re taking it from.

Go to the “Fiery Trial” page to find the resources.
