Re-write today's objective in your own words. What is the activity you will be completing and how will you know whether or not you met today's objective? 

Whole Group Independent (Voice Level 0) 33 minutes: 

Task 1: Achieve3000, "American Revolution: A Puzzle From the Past."  You need to complete all 5 tabs for this article. 

- You only need to summarize paragraphs that are more than two sentences! You may write your summaries as bullet points for my class. 

- Your thought question answer only needs to be 3-4 sentences. 

- Achieve articles are summative grades. You cannot get higher than an NP if you did not summarize. Yes you need to summarize the Dig Deeper section! In order to complete a "makeup Achieve" you need to also complete all 5 tabs and the summaries on your makeup article as well. 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes I met this objective because I completed all five tabs for the article, summarized everything including the dig deeper, and I scored 88% on the activity!" 

Exit Ticket (Voice Level 0) 2 minutes: 
Did you meet today's objective? What will you do to make sure you meet the objective before next class?
