Worked on PAIRED TEXT ANALYSIS worksheet that we started on Monday. It goes along with the assignment "Mother to Son" (poem by Langston Hughes) that is on Commonlit.org
IF STUDENTS DID NOT FINISH THE WORKSHEET IN CLASS TODAY, THEY ARE TO WORK ON IT AS HOMEWORK TONIGHT. Don't labor over this too much, it's meant to be a practice for comparison/contrast skills and a deepening for better understanding the themes in "Thank You M'am."
Did a PAIRED MEDIA ANALYSIS in class. We watched a TEDTalk by Colin Powell called "Kids Need Structure." We compared aspects of the talk to Mrs. Jones from "Thank You M'am." The assignment is on Google Classroom #005. It should be turned in NO LATER THAN THIS FRIDAY.
