Todays Reading Log Strategy, after silent reading, was SYNTHESIZE.
How does what you've read today/recently fit in with what you already know? How has it shaped, changed and/or confirmed your ideas?
Narrative Analysis - My Grandma
Students worked in small groups ( 3 or 4) to answer two practice questions in relation to the story "My Grandma". Students were to formulate their written responses, together, using the OREP Strategy ( Students have review sheets on OREP as well as model responses ( what a level 1 response looks like, a level 2 response, a level 3 response, a level 4 response...)
801 completed the group activity and we started to discuss & share responses together, as a class. WE will continue with this next class.
803 & 802 Worked together in groups but we have not yet share or discussed group responses together as a class. We will do this next class.
COMING UP ....
Students will complete a Reading Analysis ( aka READING RESPONSE) on the assigned Questions for "My GRandma". In the Narrative Response Booklet of handouts, it is the second sheet called "Response to Narrative Writing - Reading Assignment #1"
You are expected to answer questions #1 thru 9 using OREP. Remember to use SPECIFIC PROOF from the story as evidenciary support for your Opinion, Reason and Explanation.
