Comp Strats--Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Day Fourteen--Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

When You Come In
  1. Initial next to your name on my clipboard for attendance.
  2. Drop your phone in the phone hostage center.  Put your phone BEHIND your name card, please.
  3. We are not going to read and relax today, so you do not need your orange sheet or your book.

Strategy Practice:  Annotating

Read and annotate the article “Hard Hit.
  1. Do you remember how we stopped and wrote an annotation for each paragraph when we read the foot-binding article?  Flip to that article in your binder now.
  2. Now get out your Strategy Practice sheet--I want you to use that today as you read.
  3. Read “Hard Hit.”  During your reading, or at the end of each paragraph, I want you to STOP and make an annotation using one of your strategies from the sheet.  
  4. If you do question, write “Question:  Then write your question.”
  5. If you do comment, wirte “Comment:  Then write your comment.”
  6. You must do one annotation per paragraph.

Before You Read
  • Read the ten questions you will have to answer at the end, so you know what you’re looking for.
  • When you find the answers in the text as you’re reading, highlight them, so you can go back and find them later.

After You Read
  • Answer the ten questions at the end of the packet.
  • Put your name on the front of the packet, and drop this in the drawer.

Vocabulary Review
  • Please go to quizlet, and study the words until I stop you.
  • If you feel you know all the words, do the ACT word review instead.

  • Is the ACT list too big?  If it’s too big to study effectively, I can break it up into four chunks.
  • Also, do you know how to star a word, so you can practice only the starred ones?

  • Paper pass-back and folder organization
