Week of 1-14-19

This week we will continue reading our novel Restart by Gordon Korman. Our focus as we read will be on characters. We will examine the character traits for the characters introduced, and compare the characters Chase, Brendan, and Shoshanna. We will also analyze the problems in the story, and how the characters respond to such problems. 

The students will continue to work in groups and learn about early explorers. Students will explore video documentaries, reading passages, and maps to learn about these early historians. 

This week we will finish our current unit with dependent and independent clauses. There will be a unit test on Thursday, January 17th. Topics will include: adverb and adjective phrases, interjections, and dependent and independent clauses.
