    Daily Agenda

    Thursday, 3/19/20

    • Read 60 minutes
    • Google Classroom Assignment - Q2 RA Practice: "People and Nature" excerpt (you may want to print out a copy if you can)
      1. Read the excerpt and practice this: What do you notice? Add annotations.
      2. Create a "What-How-Why" 3-column chart.
      3. Fill in the chart as we had for Green's essay. Start with the What and How columns, then start to group 2-3 larger strategies/choices that would serve as the outline of an essay in the Why column.
    • Complete the "What-How-Why" 3-column chart by Sunday night.
    • On Monday, I will either post a video tutorial about the "People and Nature" excerpt or I might try to do a live video discussion to review. I'll let you know.
    • You can upload your doc, take a picture, or record your work in a video, and turn that in as your assignment.
