ELA CHALLENGE TASK FOUR

The Summer Slump! I know it isn’t summer yet, but this extended absence from school will also create the same effect if students are not making sure to participate in active learning while they are out of school!

 

That being said in ELA we are going to start focusing on practicing some of the skills we have learned in class this year. 

 

By doing this when we get back to school students will be fully prepared to pick up where we left off!

 

So this weeks skill is going to be CLOSE READING and ANNOTATING

With a specific focus on: RL8.2(8th grade)/RL7.2(7th Grade) 

RL8.2: Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to the characters, setting, and plot; provide an objective summary of the text.

RL7.2: Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text; provide an objective summary of the text.

Due on Wednesday will be an annotation of a text SPECIFICALLY looking at what is the MAIN IDEA/THEME.

Here is a quick video refresher of main idea/theme  

There will be TWO options for your close reading annotations…

  • You can make a copy of the reading and annotate on google docs.
  • You can use highlighter tool and drawing tools on your ipad
  • You can print and annotate on paper
