ELA: We will finish The Giver on Monday!!!! We will then use our knowledge of themes and elements of the story to create a 5 paragraph argumentative essay, which is DUE ON FRIDAY! We will have time to write and edit in class, though the final draft must be written at home. We will also watch some more of the movie on Friday and compare and contrast the film adaptation to the novel.
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.
Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed.
