  • Today students completed and discussed a journal on a current events video, “Bullying Babies”:
  • We then took Cornell notes on higher-lever thinking questions, later applying these questioning strategies to very basic texts.  One class viewed a brief film version of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” while the other class viewed “The Tortoise and the Hare.”  Students then worked in pairs to write one lower-level question and one-higher level question based on the stories.  We then shared and discussed each pair’s questions.  Tomorrow we will try out these questions with a more difficult, grade-level text.
  • Class ended today with time for work on the Romeo and Juliet essays.
