Do Now (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
Objective form. Write down today's objectives in your own words. What are the activities you will be completing? How do you know whether or not you were successful?

Introduction to New England Colonies. 

Independent (Voice Level 0) 40 minutes: 
Task 1: Choose between these two Achieve Articles:

**Make sure you are completing the first four tabs, including summarizing every paragraph that is over 2 sentences. You can summarize in bullet point format! I check all summaries and will give you an NP if you do not complete them, no matter what you got on the activity!**

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

- Achieve articles are summative grades. You cannot get higher than an NP if you did not summarize. In order to complete a "makeup Achieve" you need to also complete all 4 tabs and the summaries on your makeup article as well. 

Task 2: Watch this video on the colonies.
