Objective: Identify new directions in learning by seeking out problem concepts and distracting vocabulary.
It’s time to use our tools (like Jupiter and Newsela) to take control of our learning!
- Newsela Reading (Newsela): Complete at least one article (with its quiz). (Be sure to choose the highest level where your reading comprehension is strong).
- Tough Ones (JF): Post the question text of the five toughest questions that Newsela has ever asked you. (It’s a search, cut and paste job).
- Reading Doctor (JF): Describe the kinds of questions that our class has the most trouble with. (Look for similar topics or types of questions). (This requires a thinking paragraph and examples).
- Power Test Vocabulary (JF): Post the seven toughest words from the test questions, one word per posting please.
Bonus: Make a word cloud of our Power Test Vocabulary using a site like http://www.tagxedo.com/ or https://tagul.com/ or http://www.wordle.net/ or http://www.abcya.com/word_clouds.htm and message it to me!
