Hey English 10,
Today our focus will be on developing/deepening our use of a strategy effective readers constantly during and after reading to appreciate and understand what they read. Below you’ll find a number of digital resources to support you in developing and submitting your second IRP entry to Google classroom for our ongoing portfolio project.
For this entry, you will need:
- Your copy of either Girl Soldier (Grace Akallo & Faith McDonnell) or Long Way Gone (Ishmael Beah).
- This article: Former child soldier still haunted by memories of war (Toronto Star, June 11, 2016) (PDF)
- Your reading notebook
- Your notes from today’s lesson and the sample entry we annotated today
Interested in the full article about Melida (the Colombian girl in the video above)? Read it here:
Your completed entry for this task is due in Google Classroom no later than the start of class on Friday, March 31. If for any reason you need assistance, it’s your job to email me to arrange time for extra help BEFORE IT IS DUE. Looking forward to seeing how you apply this strategy to the memoir we shared during February!
