Writers Wednesday

Hello parents and students, 

I hope that you had a great evening so far. We are already half-way through the week. I am really hoping that the weather clears up so that our ski trip on Friday is not affected. 

In math today, we discussed surveys and our final summative project for this unit. The students will be getting the summative tomorrow and we will be working on it next week. For surveys, the students have learned about bias (unfair information or results), primary data (collected through observation, measurement, or surveys), and secondary information (collected from books and online -- other people's results). The students also worked on creating questions and making inferences based on data. 

In language, the students wrote a practice OWA for persuasive announcements. We put a success criteria on the board that the students could follow in order to insure that they were meeting all the requirements of the rubric. Afterwards, students evaluated each other and gave feedback about improvements. Here is the success criteria anchor chart. Tonight, the students and parents can review the practice OWA to prepare for the final assessment tomorrow. 

In UOI, the students worked with their groups that created a review sheet of 25 questions. I have given the students the review sheet and the students have to complete the questions tonight for tomorrow. I have also introduced the new Body World Summative to the students, the students will get the package for that tomorrow as well.
