R&W: “How I Got Into College” + SSR Concept Maps

We finished watching and discussing the film and corresponding questions. On Monday, we will introduce our SSR concept/mind map project (3rd hour’s and 4th hour’s). We will be completing this on Monday before heading up to the lab to select a book from the following reading list to begin reading on Wednesday.

The following articles correspond to your future concept/mind map topics:

  1. Benefits of SSR in the classroom
  2. Why high schools should cut the classics and introduce more YA Lit 
  3. Why schools should keep teaching the classics
  4. Why high school students hate reading
  5. Why many Ss have to take remedial reading courses their freshman year of college

Homework: College Essay Rolling deadline begins tomorrow (here’s the final checklist) and ends Monday!

and…your 20% project work time begins tomorrow! Brainstorm!
