ELA 8: Today we chose topics for our snapshot moments. Don't forget the "reading like a writer" assignment is due tomorrow.  Some helpful hints:  when commenting in the margins, you can include why you think the author chose that strategy, how that strategy adds to the piece, or why you think it's effective.

Social Studies 8: Today we presented our pitches for how we would like to spend money on the outdoor parts of our school.  We also began a new assignment, which has students working in groups to research the platform of a political party.  Students will be presenting this information during Friday's class.  On Monday we will hold our own school vote!

Today we “read like writers”!  We looked at an example of a snapshot moment and investigated strategies that the writer used to create voice, slow time down, and include sensory details.  Hopefully we can include some of these strategies in our own writing.
