Whole Group (Voice Level 1) 10 Minutes: 

Independent (Voice Level 0) 30 Minutes: 
Please choose to fill out your graphic organizer based on one of the following news articles.

Trump Elected President in Surprise Win - this article is from NewsELA and can be adjusted for lower lexiles. I recommend this article if you are below a lexile level of 950.

How Hillary Clinton Lost - this article is from CNN and is written at a high lexile level.

Five Ways a Donald Trump Presidency Changes the World - This article is from BBC and is the highest level article of the three, mainly due to its content not necessarily the language. 

Whole Group (Voice Level 1) 7 Minutes: 
Checks & Balances review. 

Please continue to work on your PBL Action Plan, now more than ever we need to positively impact the world around us.
