Can you believe it’s Week 3 already?! Time flies. Here’s a quick gist of what we’ll be looking at this week:
ELA: Monday we’ll start looking at how to write an argumentative paragraph with supporting details. Tuesday and Wednesday we will be testing! So come well rested! Thursday and Friday we will be continuing with The Giver and its various components such as interpretations and symbolic rituals! Exciting stuff!
Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text; provide an objective summary of the text.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of rhymes and other repetitions of sounds (e.g., alliteration) on a specific verse or stanza of a poem or section of a story or drama.
Present claims and findings, emphasizing salient points in a focused, coherent manner with pertinent descriptions, facts, details, and examples; use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume, and clear pronunciation.
SS: For Social Studies this week, be prepared for some awesome activities! From murder mysteries to travel brochures, we’ll be using various activities to discover more about ancient Rome, and how it went from a Republic to an Empire (and what this actually means).
7.1 Students analyze the causes and effects of the vast expansion and ultimate disintegration of the Roman Empire.
