Warm up: Vocabulary practice. Fill the blanks in the sentence in with one of the vocabulary words from Monday.
We split the text into logical parts today. This is called "chunking". We started by looking closely at the text to determine where the introduction ended, before moving on to group paragraphs together depending on content. After each chunk we drew a line across the page.
Afterwards, we talked briefly about summarizing each chunk's content in the left-hand margin, indicating what the author "says".
Finish the "says" statements down the left-hand column of the text. One statement per chunk, not per paragraph.
Have a great weekend!
