I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable spring break. I thoroughly enjoyed California and it was great to spend time with my family.
In Social Studies this week, students are brainstorming potential product designs to help solve the problems they have been researching in their “Future Forecast” task forces. Towards the end of the week, they will begin to design an advertisement (print or commercial) to “sell” their product at the upcoming product convention.
In English, students will be applying what they have learned about persuasive writing in the design of their “Future Forecast” advertisement. They will also be writing introductions and conclusions for the presentation of their product.
Starting this week, students will also be meeting with me for a reading conference in which they compare and contrast two books from their genre wheel goals. Students will be signing up for a specific date and time that will take place at some point over the next 6 weeks. They need to come to this conference prepared to discuss their two books in detail.
Have a great week!
