It is an exciting week in 3PA! Field Correspondents are presenting their hard work to one another. Take a peek at the incredible magazine covers students designed for their articles! Presentations will continue tomorrow and more photos of the reporters will be posted later this week.
5PA student recently began reading a portion of an essay by astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, entitled "The Cosmic Perspective". This rigorous and complex text contained a number of rich and important ideas that challenges us as readers. Students used a concept map that provided an opportunity to peel the layers of the text to uncover and reveal central meanings. Students worked in teams to peel a a particular number of lines from the text. Teams will share their observations and analysis in class this week.
