When I sat down with my friend CScope to do lesson plans for this coming week, I saw that we were to be studying various tactics that are used in Media for ELAR. Since we're devoting next week to Dr. Seuss, I must integrate! The first writing will be done after we read The Cat in the Hat. Students design a new hat and then persuade The Cat to buy it.
The next, I made to resemble a magazine advertisement, where the picture is on one side and the write up is on the other. I guess it is kind of like those medication ads :). This one will be done after reading Green Eggs and Ham.
