Language Arts: Students will start the I am Malala unit by working in literature circles on Chapters 1-5 this week. Their focus will be on comprehension, vocabulary, and making connections to the text. Reading Log #3 is due Friday, November 9th (can be any book of the student’s choice that is of interest and at least a bit challenging).
Social Studies: Students will learn about Muslim contributions and different perspectives of the Crusades. They will complete a scavenger hunt packet on Muslim contributions, and a group activity for the Crusades. All activities and work will be done in class.
