This month students will begin to write a literary analysis essay on Salva's character in A Long Walk to Water.Students will analyze Salva's characterization and discuss ways in which he was able to survive in a challenging environment. Students will focus on writing thesis statements, creating thoughtful claims about Salva, and using textual evidence to support those claims. With modeling by the teacher, brainstorming writing time, outlines, and step-by-step instruction, students will organize a thoughtful essay.
Students, in all classes, are happily reading independently! Students were able to look at texts in our class library and check them out to take home. Every other week, students will have time to read their independent reading book in class. The schedule has changed because students are able to visit the school library during ELA class at different times during the week and can now check out books at the school library! The NEW schedule is as follows: 701: Thursday - Library time period 4 702: Thursday - Library time period 4 703: Monday - Library time period 4 704: Tuesday - Library time period 4
