  3. 3. Our Umbrella: Get Them Talking! Giving students time to talk collaboratively provides important opportunity for rehearsal before writing or large-group discussions. Human beings are social creatures who learn best through conversation. Teens, especially, are social, and leveraging that need increases engagement. “Oral language is a cornerstone on which we build our literacy and learning throughout life.” (Zwiers & Crawford, 2011) 3 S & L 1: Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. Thursday, March 13, 14
  4. 4. Strategy 1: Close read images Turn to p. 7 of your packet and get ready to write. 4 R 1: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

  12. 12. Strategy 2: The Written Conversation Take a few minutes to read the text,“Oil Bloom” from Science World, September 2, 2013. Read with the following question in mind: “How might Sara’s research change our future?” On the notebook paper in your packet, write “Log In: Your Name” in the left hand margin. Then write your thinking about the question. 12 W 4: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. Thursday, March 13, 14
  13. 13. Trade with a partner. Read your partner’s thinking and then write a response. Be sure to “log in” in the margin before you start writing. Trade as directed until activity comes to an end. 13 Thursday, March 13, 14
  14. 14. Now turn and talk. What variations can you think of that would work for you? Do you have any questions? Thursday, March 13, 14
  15. 15. Turn and talk with a neighbor about cloning. What do you know or think you know about cloning? 15 Strategy 3: Read-Share- Compare R1: Reading closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. R9: Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics and build knowledge or compare the approaches authors take. S & L4: Present information, findings and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. Thursday, March 13, 14
  16. 16. The articles you are about to read deal with cloning pets. What do you think an article like this would probably include? What questions about dog or cat cloning would you want to answer? Find the articles in your packet. Decide with your partner which of you will read “Koreans Produce World’s First Cloned Dog” and which will read “Scientists Successfully Clone Cat” Read your article and annotate your text with our questions in mind. When you’ve finished, talk with your partner about your text. Share your learning. Answer each other’s questions. Go back into the text to support your discussion. 16 Thursday, March 13, 14
  17. 17. Wrap It Up Turn and Talk: What are you thinking now? What can you take and use in your classroom? What questions do you have for us? 17 Thursday, March 13, 14
