3/30-31 Thursday - Friday

Guiding Question:
How can we make people more aware of modern slavery around the world?

Collaborative: Students will work to raise awareness of a form of modern slavery by presenting their PSA to their peers with a score of at least 3/4 according to the rubric. 

Independent: Students will work to increase their Lexile levels by reading an Achieve article on slavery, completing the first four tabs, and scoring at least 75% on the activity. 


8.7.2 - Trace the origins and development of slavery; its effects on black Americans and on the region’s political, social, religious, economic, and cultural development; and identify the strategies that were tried to both overturn and preserve it (e.g., through the writings and historical documents on Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey).
CCRA.R.1 – Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
SL.8.4 - Present claims and findings, emphasizing salient points in a focused, coherent manner with relevant evidence, sound valid reasoning, and well-chosen details; use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume, and clear pronunciation.
ELD B.6 - Read closely to determine how meaning is made

If you did not finish your Independent Research Paper, that is your priority!! Do not work on the Achieve article if you have not submitted your paper. 

Task 1: Achieve3000, "The Power of the Pen". You need to complete the first 4 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.
