Yesterday was Constitution day so students spent most of the period reading a Newsela article on the compromises that were made at the Constitutional convention. Students then answered four SAT style multiple choice questions which we discussed. Roughly once a month we will work on an assignment like this to give students experience with the type of multiple choice questions they will see on the SAT.
We then discussed the Chapter 4 reading that has been assigned.
Today in class we focused on an activity that analyzes the role of audience and purpose in a primary source. Students read three primary sources and discussed how a consideration of audience and purpose can impact the analysis of a primary source.
Remember that by Thursday, pages 72-85 need to be read and that we will have a Chapter 4 notebook check. The Chapter 5 guided reading is included below.
