1. DLP #5
2. Warm up #1
3. Active reading strategies & Reader Response Journals
4. "War" - RRJ #1
5. Literary terms part II
Today we focused on reading and learning how to set up specific assignments. For example, students completed a warm up that required them to consider how they would respond in a given situation. I also handed out the directions for reader response journals while explaining the logic behind them. I helped students to complete the first entry, modeling how the response should be formatted. Finally, students read the short story "War." They had class time to read and complete the RRJ.
I passed out laptops in 1st and 2nd and opened up 3 desktops in 4th period so that students could log on to complete their literary terms in the collaborative document as well as complete the survey.
