ELA: Reading/Writing week of 10.05.15

It’s a new grading cycle, and we’re starting new units in both reading and writing. This week you’ll be diving into point of view and character studies. This unit is about reading with understanding and really building the world of the story. We’ll read short stories in our minilessons and get to know why characters act the way they do.

In writing, we’re starting another writing process. This week you’ll be immersing yourselves in short stories and collecting entries of ideas like writers of short stories do. We’ll spend some time on sentence structure for a grammar lesson on Friday.

Homework is the usual: read 150 minutes outside of class and log it. Write one entry for short story collecting each day you have class.
