What's Going On In This Picture?

Then we will return to the Article of the Week, continuing to work on annotating and reading nonfiction. This week's article is about health care and cost. We will read with partners and annotate together. My opening annotations can be seen below and should make their way onto your article:

Because we are also working on the What Is Going On In This Picture?, we will have class time on Tuesday to continue annotating and responding to the Article of the Week. The response is due in the Get Your Read On forum by class time on Thursday. 

Tuesday:

Goal check. As we have shortened classes, today's goal check will be brief.

Thursday:

Make sure your article response is posted in the forum by class time. Due to the musical matinee performance, I will be gone during the afternoon. We will have reading time today. You may also want to get a head start on your vocabulary, which returns on Friday. Three words due by the end of class Friday.
