Class Notes for January 17

1. Students were to answer questions on the following topics: predicting outcomes, making inferences, and recognizing persuasive devices.

Activity 1: Students were to read for 30 minutes in the chapter book that should follow them everywhere they go.

Activity 2: After reading, students were to answer questions about the book and how it was written. The five questions are:
1. How do you feel about the way the story is told?
2. Is there anything about the way the author wrote that gave you enjoyment or cause you irritation?
3. What do you feel is the most significant passage from your reading?
4. Why is this passage important to you?
5. What makes this passage significant to the story?

Activity 3: Fill out your reading log on today’s reading.

A glance ahead:
1. Students will be going to Media Center on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
2. By Friday students will need 50 note cards and 4 bibliography cards done.
3. By Friday students need to have their “anticipation guide” and “sources for research” done.

Tonight’s homework:
1. If you didn’t finish the 5 questions on the way your book was written, do so.
2. As always, read for 30 minutes and complete an entry in your reading log.
