10 Course Outline Unit 1: Introduction to Questioning and Shared Inquiry How does inquiry help readers construct meaning as they interact with print and non-print texts? What strategies can I use to help me analyze and discuss texts? How can we learn more about topics we are learning about in Social Studies class by interacting with texts? Unit 2: Using Claim and Evidence to explore big ideas about government What makes a good government? What factors contribute to people taking government into their own hands? How can we support our claims by using text evidence?

11 Course Outline Unit 3: Social Commentary What is social commentary and what is its purpose in texts? How can speakers effectively expose, defend and debate a topic to persuade an audience on an issue? What does equality mean to you? What are the historical contradictions that exist within the definition of equality? Unit 4: Investigating Experiences beyond my own How does using texts and questioning to investigate the world around shape my view of the world? How do authors use point of view to convey theme and influence the reader? Why is it important that human rights are universal? What are factors that infringe upon human rights? What challenges inhibit human rights for all?

17 Marking the Text Marking a text is an excellent way to make the most out of the reading we do. Marking the text makes it easy to find important information quickly when we look back and review a text. Marking the text helps us to make reading an active process!

18 We will use Cornell Notes this year! You will use this space to record all of the important information (notes) such as people, places, dates, events, and vocabulary definitions This is where you will create questions based on the information that you wrote in the notes section. You can use these questions to help you study This is where you will summarize your notes. You will reflect on what you have learned

19 We use the strategy RAFFT to write short responses! R estate the question A nswer the question F act One- Write the text detail. Explain how it connects to the question. F act Two – Write the text detail. Explain how it connects to the question. T ie up your answer. R estate the question A nswer the question F act One- Write the text detail.
