Reading

Students will continue working in the Teacher’s College reading program, Research Clubs unit. The classes will read several mentor texts and study the genre of nonfiction. Students will think about patterns across multiple texts, and state theories about the texts.  They will build upon their main idea and detail knowledge by synthesizing text.  They will also identify text structure in order to hold onto meaning.
