Students will complete their newscast script or recording so they are ready to share. I have arranged for space in the library so groups can record.
Students will share their newscasts today. These may be video or audio as decided in our last class.
As we share each groups newscast, we'll discuss whether it was a successful narrative or what happened. Was it objective as a good summary (or newscast in this case) should be?
Students will listen to the audio -picking up where we left in the last class - and follow in their books. As they do they will be very involved in the text, actively reading per the instructions on the Reading Circle sheets.
I will allow the class to read until the last five minutes of class time and record their stopping point.
Wrap up time is spent allowing students to "debrief" independently - collecting their post its and/or completing their thoughts on their Reading Circle sheets. We always discuss questions or concerns before class is dismissed.
