Students are focusing in on specific EOG skills and CC standards. We have been concentrating this past week on Central Idea and Details. Students have learned to read the questions and highlight key words. We've really focused on finding out "What the question is asking us?"
On Monday, we will start a new skill - Plot Elements. Students will be plotting short stories to find the Exposition (Beginning), Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution (Ending). Students will learn the meaning of these terms and be able to apply this to various types of Fiction.
