12/7 Wednesday

Guiding Question: 
What is going on in the world around us?

Students will investigate a current event by reading an article closely, filling out a graphic organizer, and writing a clear and coherent summary with a score of 3/4 or better according to the rubric. 

CCRA.R.1 – Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it

WHST.6-8.4 - Produce clear and coherent writing 

ELD B.6 - Reading closely literary and informational texts and viewing multimedia to determine how meaning is conveyed.

Do Now (Voice Level 1) 10 Minutes: 
Current Event Quizizz. Go to www.join.quizizz.com and enter in the code that is on the projector. The class with the highest total questions correct wins a class point. 

Independent (Voice Level 0) 25 Minutes: 
You have 25 minutes to investigate a current event of your choice from NewsELA. Username is ComaCobb and the password is history. 

For NewsELA, remember to log in with username "ComaCobb" and password "history". 

Fill out the graphic organizer and write your summary. Here is a rubric for your current event papers. 

Need some help with your summaries? Use the questions on the front of your paper as sentence starters. "The title of my story is...", "This story is affecting..." etc. Almost all of you did an awesome job with this last week and the week before!! 

Early Finishers: Complete any missing assignments, read another article on NewsELA, watch CNN student news, ponder the meaning of life. 

Whole Group (Voice Level .5 - 1) 10 minutes: 
We will be pair-sharing our current events and I will randomly select 2-3 students to share with the whole class the "5 W's" for their news story. 

All late work is due THIS FRIDAY!!
