Today you’ll be given 3 tasks (though it’s okay if you only get through two of them). We’re going to the library to find concrete details from books. Yes books! On your sheet there will be a list of 8 choices for a pretend research paper topic. You choose one option and find two concrete details for it. You will then write down the name and author of your book.
Next, you will find a magazine article that interests you and make a copy of it. Read it twice and take notes on it.
Finally, find a nonfiction book that interests you and check it out before the end of class.
You will turn in the sheet at the end of the day for 5 formative points.
Also, we will practice quack words for the do now.
