A Memoir about life after loss and growing up with an mentally unwell parent, respectively.
Listening to Others to Get the Gears Turning! Once students have watched the video, I take a minute to discuss with the students who they may be thinking of as their choice.
I want them thinking about citing their evidence already! Label New Learning 5 minutes After students share out their ideas, I want to show them that they are already working on the standard and doing a great job!
For example, are you thinking that one person might be a good choice, but you also think someone else might be a good choice? See all of these sheets in the "Resources" section here! I ask the students to choose three people that they think they might want to write about.
As the students make their choices, I circulate around the room and keep my eye out for anyone that may not be circling or looks confused, torn, etc.
Once students have their three choices, I ask them to turn the page in their packets and to take a look at the opinion writing planning sheet. Once the students have their three pieces of evidence, to the right of each evidence, I ask the students to tell me why, in their own words, this evidence shows that this person is the most creative, inventive, or notable.
Again, I let the students think and write, circulating to help support and guide any struggling students.Resources to support planning Purple - Lower ability Blue - Middle ability Green - Top ability I may have some other resources saved for this unit/5(12).
