  1. 1. Articles of the Week
  2. 2. Rationale: test scores •  “A  student  who  reads  15  minutes    a  day  will   increase  2  points  on  an  achievement  test.”     •  “You  must  ins<ll  the  love  for  reading  by   example  and  by  seeing  that  your  students  read.”   •  MNEA,  Raising  Test  Scores,  What  Teachers  Can   Do  
  3. 3. Rationale: building background •  “Part  of  the  reason  my  students  have  such  a  hard   3me  reading  is  because  they  bring  li8le  prior   knowledge  and  background  to  the  wri8en  page… To  help  build  my  students’  prior  knowledge,  I   assign  them  an  “Ar3cle  of  the  Week”  every   Monday  morning.  By  the  end  of  the  school  year  I   want  them  to  have  read  35-­‐40  ar3cles  about   what  is  going  on  in  the  world…if  my  students  are   to  become  literate,  they  must  broaden  their   reading  experiences.”     •  Kelly  Gallagher  
  4. 4. Our articles.... •  Will  be  assigned  on  Monday  and  will  be  due  on  Friday.       •  Will  always  be  CURRENT  and  about  something  going   on  in  the  world,  but  will  not  necessarily  relate  to  the   current  topic  we  are  discussing  in  class.     •  Outside  of  a  small  discussion  on  Friday  when  they  are   turned  in,  we  will  not  spend  class  3me  to  read  these   ar3cles  or  complete  this  assignment.  
  5. 5. 3 Things 1.  Show  evidence  of  a  close  read-­‐mark  up  the   text  with  your  ques3ons  and  comments.   2.  Write  a  1-­‐page  reflec3on  on  your  own  sheet   of  paper.   3.  Write  a  “window  quote”  for  the  ar3cle.  
  6. 6. Annotating •  Reac3ons   •  Connec3ons   •  Ques3ons   •  Comments   •  Notes  for  further  research  
  7. 7. Reflection •  Pick  a  line  from  the  ar3cle  and  respond  to  it   •  Discuss  how/if  the  author’s  view  on  the  topic   relates  to  your  own  personal  view   •  Make  predic3ons  about  the  follow-­‐up  that   may  happen  with  this  topic  in  the  future  
  8. 8. Window Quote •  Choose  one  quote  from  the  ar3cle  that  “sums   up”  the  essence  of  the  author’s  view
