We have had a busy week in ELA. Yesterday, they were given two informational articles in the NEWSELA website. They were to complete both of them. I recorded both comprehension articles. I recorded one as a practice and one as a performance task. They were then instructed to read/finish Chapter 7 of Esperanza Rising and the proceeding questions.
Today, we reflected on what we could do different in our schools so that what happened in Florida does not happen here. I am excited to read their responses and hope to share some of them out to you. They were then supposed to read Chapter 8 and work on the questions. 

Wednesday, February 14th

Students were given a quiz over Chapter 4 in Esperanza Rising. They were able to use their books and notes. They also had as much time as they needed to complete the quiz. Students are not allowed to retake this quiz but more quizzes will be given about this book, they need to be prepared. I have attached the quiz and have gone over it with the students as well as strategies to use when reading the book.
