Day 47: Monday, 5/5 (A) AND Tuesday, 5/6 (B)

Objective E/LA 9.2 (CCS SL9.1a) Come to discussions prepared, having read and researched material under study; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence from texts and other research on the topic or issue to stimulate a thoughtful, well-reasoned exchange of ideas.

Today's Plan
1. Chapters 20 & 21 reflective writing. Discuss.
2. Students read chapter 22 and 23 in class. Each student gets 2 questions. Students answer their questions on handout.
3. Begin Socratic Seminar if time allows.

HW: PULL YOUR OWN QUOTE. Read Chapter 22 or 23, pull one significant quote from the reading (cite correctly), and ask a discussion-generating question based on the quote you pulled.
