Trimester 1

Our goals in Reading for the first Trimester are:

To establish an independent reading practice of 100 pages per week, choosing grade-level appropriate fictional novels.

To continue using various summarizing techniques to create understanding of a text, and to guide us towards further character analysis.

To practice thoughtful, evaluative written reading responses.   

See each grade level page for more specific goals, and the texts we're using to get there.

October 2018

We begin the year reviewing Narrative Elements, and how they can be used to summarize narratives: 

We apply these same elements to creating plot maps, looking for the common sequences that inform narratives of all kinds (poems, short stories, movies, music videos, etc.) 

Visit the grade-level pages for more specifics and some curriculum materials.
