Day Sixteen--Thursday, January 29th, 2015
When You Come In
- Initial next to your name on my clipboard for attendance.
- Drop your phone in the phone hostage center. Put your phone BEHIND your name card, please.
- Grab your orange daiy reading log and your book, please.
- Grab your “Hard Hit” article off the front table.
Strategy Review--getting stronger at reading is about (1) learning or being reminded of useful strategies, and (2) getting into the habit of using them every time you read something for school or work.
- Annotations--if you got a yellow box next to a paragraph, it’s because you’re missing an annotation.
- Very few people annotated the list on page four. Let’s talk for a minute about what we do when we see text features:
- TEXT FEATURES are often important to the reading. We should pay attention to the information they’re giving us.
- Pre-reading questions--Joceline, Amber, Alyk, Lexi, Antoine, Hannah, Mercedes--highlighted answers.
- Numbering paragraphs--Kyra, Joceline, Dalton, Megan, Amber, Lexi, Antoine, Hannah--numbered their paragraphs.
- Check the ten questions at the end of the reading by DISCUSSING them with your partner, and going to the text to find the answer, if the two of you disagree.
- To the left of each number, write down the PARAGRAPH where you found the answer, if applicable.
- When you finish, drop your “Hard Hits” in the drawer, and come grab ONE TEXT STRUCTURE handout, and TWO NONFICTION CLOSE READING GUIDES.

- Take a look at the Nonfiction Close Reading Guide.
- You are going to read and analyze TWO concussion articles online.
- Select an article to read, and fill out every item on the Nonfiction Close Reading Guide while analyzing.

- Turn the sheets into the drawer when you finish.
- We will discuss your analysis tomorrow.
- Read until I stop you; do not quit early and start filling out your sheet, etc.
- Quitting early means you will only earn a “3,” at best for your daily reading today.
