JOURNAL: Strategies Used by Good Readers

 Look at the strategies page at the front of your folder. Some of these are strategies you already use. Some are things you have to use weekly in class. Some you may not like, be comfortable with, or even understand.

Which two strategies are most helpful to you? Why? Which two strategies do you want to use more? Why?

9-17-15 Journal

Why is the story organized this way? Use details from the text to prove your answer.


Things to think about:
Does it list things and then describe them?
Does it go in chronological order?
Does it show cause and effect?
Why are the details in that order?

***Show me that you are thinking and understand the story.
***Do not copy; put details into your own words.

2nd Week of Blog Comments

The good news: 50% of all people who commented on the blog signed their post correctly, up from 24% last week.

The bad news: Still only 23% of all students commented on the blog- and that's only counting the people who were here yesterday.

I know a few people struggled to get their comments posted because of time or Internet Explorer (PLEASE stop using it!!), but that is still nowhere near where we need to be.

What can we do to improve participation on this assignment?
