ELA: Reading & Writing week of 02.22.16

This week in Writing you’ll continue STAAR Writing preparation. The work of the week is Attacking The Prompt, so Monday/Tuesday will be spent dissecting example prompts. Wednesday is a Funky Blue day, and the focus will be on using the prompt to help you brainstorm composition ideas. Thursday/Friday will be spent on learning different strategies for pre-writing in a short amount of time, and you’ll revisit the Revising/Editing portion of the test.

Writing – Mon/Tues: none; Thurs/Fri: the assigned lesson and practice on NoRedInk.com completed by your next class.
