Monday

Library Day!  This will be our last visit to the library as a class in the modular.  We will next go to the brand new library after Christmas break.  You can still check out books before school or during homeroom until the last of the books are packed for the move.  Please turn in books as you finish them.  I will pass out the December book order for a last chance to order books before Christmas.        
Homework: Read.  Choose five words for Weekly Word Study.

Tuesday

Read first 15 minutes of class.  We will brainstorm topics for editorials and practice framing the issues with controversial questions.  You need to decide on a topic!

Wednesday

Read first 15 minutes of class.  Choose a topic for your editorial.  Complete a planning sheet for it.  Put your opinion or position statement in a box in the center.  In each of four boxes around the edges, list an argument or reason why your position is right.  Under each box, list details to support your argument.  If you have time, start writing your first draft.
