We are gearing up for our IAR assessment coming up in March. We have been practicing using context clues to identify the meaning of unknown words as well as analyzing across texts to see how Authors perspective, Voice, ideas , tone , mood and purpose etc are developed over the course of a text.
Please Remember to review the ELA syllabus that outlines the expectations for the classroom as well as materials needed, classroom management techniques ,extra credit policy, late work policy, explanation of ongoing assignments such as weekly homework vocabulary cards and book letters. If you have any questions concerning the syllabus please do not hesitate to email me @email@example.com.
What are we up to this month?
With the assistance of our My Perspectives ,students have been engaged in tailored learning experiences that connect them to the content and to the world through an relatable essential question that drives students to inquire about an big picture idea through informational texts, audio and video analyzation, language convention practice and writing exercises that connect to the 6 traits of writing.
This month our focus is on authors purpose,research task and literary writing techniques, text structure organization , and analyzation and annotation of texts. We will continue to work on analyzation of paired texts, literary elements , figurative language , Context clues identification, and Vocabulary.
