This week we have begun argumentative writing! Students will be writing a 5 paragraph argumentative essay addressing the following question: Should schools start later?
Yesterday we read an article and annotated. Students are responsible for writing at least three summaries and three connections as they read. They also highlighted reasons that school SHOULD start later in green, and highlighted reasons school should NOT start later in yellow.
Today students will begin writing an outline for their main arguments- body paragraphs 1 and 2.
Make sure you are keeping up with our daily work on this essay so you do not fall behind!
IXL homework for this week: Complete at least 20 questions on the Diagnostic for Language Arts (all students should have completed this in class Monday). Complete (with a 90% or higher) two skills from the Recommendations tab. This is due Friday!
