Use the template attached below to help you plan your paragraph writing. A grade 7 paragraph should be 8 - 10 sentences long. The body of the paragraph (the supporting evidence) can include:
In the next few days, all Language classes in grade 7 and 8 will be starting a Read Aloud. The book we have chosen this year is called The Darkest Minds, by Alexandra Bracken. The Darkest Minds is the first book in a four book series. Each class will be spending 10 - 15 minutes a day reading and discussing the book and completing a variety of activities. The teacher will be doing the Read Aloud, but a PDF of the book will be posted if students miss a day or want to re-read a section or chapter. We do not need students to read ahead.
In the next week we will be working on identifying text features and finding out what each features does. You will have a worksheet that will list the text features. Your job is t use the BoldPrint book that you chose in class to find an example of the text feature and to describe the text feature's "job". A copy of the worksheet is attached below if you forgot or lost yours.
