Homework:
Reading-Read for 30 minutes and complete an entry on your reading log answering the 5Ws.
Night Write-Students are to write about something new they have learned about persuasive arguments and something they want to work on to become better at persuasive arguments.


Reading logs will be collected on Friday, April 13 to update the number of books read and to check 4 consecutive days of reading entries 4/9-4/12.


Activity 1:
Groups will present their written argument to the class. Before students present, hand out the <a href="http://www.readwritethink.org/lesson_images/lesson56/homework2.pdf">Check the Strategies sheet. Students will mark off the strategies they hear in each presentation.


Activity 2:
After each group presents, ask the class to share any persuasive strategies they heard in the argument.


Activity 3:
With the use of laptops in the classroom or the MAC lab students will work with a partner to complete an essay on "TV or No TV" using http://www.mcps.k12.md.us/schools/stonemilles/thirdgrade/tvturnoff.htm, which supplies the resources and guides students step by step through the process of writing a persuasive argument.
