This week we will begin the unit entitled, "Society and the World". Various discussions about our society, how it influences us, the meaning of society, and how we utilize its resources will be the main topic for next week and a half.
As a class, we will set a purpose for the reading by defining the literary element of argument. The reading skill of distinguishing fact and opinion will be discussed and demonstrated.
We will read, discuss, define and analyze the unit reading entitled, "Saving Water". The students will be asked to take some notes and save their notes in their Google drive-document or presentation file.
Throughout each unit, various unit questions will be asked. Each student will write their response and send them to me for grading.
