January 27, 2006
What a day we had today! Friday, January 27

Great Source pg. 403-404

Warm Up:
What is a work-cited page?

Activity 1:
Students will alphabetize their source cards. Review Great Source pg. 403-404 for the guidelines for creating a work-cited page. The media center blog will have Mrs. Hendrix’s guidelines for each type of source. Please keep in mind that every mark of punctuation, capitalization, underlining, indenting, etc. is important for an accurate work-cited page.

Activity 2:
Students will focus on revising just the rough draft of their paper by reading it aloud to their writing buddy..

What a fabulous opportunity has graced our students! Thanks to Dr. Tyson, I have 16 students who post their work to the blog each day. This student work is available for grandma's. grandpas, aunts, uncles, parents, etc. Students may comment to each other. All comments are screened by me before they are posted to the world. Please have your student and you take advantage of this opportunity. Seeing and commenting on other students' work, allows your student and you to compare their work. How powerful this learning experience will be for all! Here are the directions:
