READING IS THINKING Develop reading strategies to make meaning out of reading. PRACTICE – PRACTICE PRACTICE Read 30 minutes five nights a week. Please support our 40-50 book challenge this year. They can do it!

STAAR REPORTING CATEGORY 1: Understanding and Analysis across Genres: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Drama. Media Literacy is included. REPORTING CATEGORY 2: Understanding and Analysis of Literary Texts Analysis : inferencing, drawing conclusions, summarizing, recognizing author’s use of dialect. REPORTING CATEGORY 3: Understanding and Analysis of Informational Texts Informational: Expository, Persuasive, Procedural texts.

Springboard Unit 1: Changes in Me. We will study storytelling. We will write a personal narrative about an incident that had an impact on our life. We will also write an expository essay about an incident that changed us. Unit 2: Changes in My World. We will study and create short stories. We will also pick a story and create a news broadcast. Presentations will be videoed and presented in groups. Unit 3: Changes in Self Perception. This is a novel study of HOLES. We will write and use film clips to study characterization. Unit 5: Changes in Times and Places. We will research an everyday item and measure its impact on society.
