TUE 10/4

CNN Student News


  • Students listened to me read a "break-up letter" that I "found" left on my classroom floor.  They discovered that it was actually a modern-day Declaration of Independence, by which the 13 colonies were "breaking up" with Great Britain.
  • Students then watched the video "Too Late to Apologize" to review the reasons for this separation.
  • We began reading the Declaration of Independence together and paraphrasing.  For each section, students were expected to:
    • Stop at each vertical line
    • Circle and define any unfamiliar vocabulary (link to glossary here)
    • Determine what the text says
    • Paraphrase in the second column; re-write it as you would explain it to a friend or younger sibling.
    • Continue reading / repeat process.
Finish any parts of sections 2 & 3 that you did not read/paraphrase at home.
