This week we are reviewing an old concept with a different twist. A few months ago students worked extensively to describe the connection between two individuals. We focused on comparing important figures such as MLK Jr., Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges as well as the presidents. For the next couple of weeks we are going to be describing the connection between two ideas. We will be focusing on the same concept however this time we will find how do two different ideas in a text connect. For example, we will look at two different books that discuss keeping our planet clean. We will find what the connection is between those two books.
This week we are continuing our work with opinion writing. We are focusing on supporting our opinion with detailed reasons. Look for these to come home throughout the week.
