Today we started our Writing Unit. We worked on parts of a sentence and what makes complex sentences. We looked at Dependent and Independent clauses and we started with imitation sentences. Attached is the handout that we worked on in class today. It is due next class.
We are now working on a summative project for the media literacy unit. Students are creating their own advertisement to show their depth of understanding of audience, persuasion, branding, messaging and critical thinking. The project is due at the end of the week.
Today completed an exploration of relevant vocabulary related to understanding and exploring media (see attached document). We also competed a worksheet that involved analyzing a newspaper and identifying elements such as stereotype, genre, headline, audience etc. (see attached) These worksheets are expected to be completed.
Don't forget to bring your silent reading book for next class.
