January's Text-Based Responses


In class today we practiced answering text-based questions using the R.A.C.E. method. One of the articles our morning class read was on the Civil Rights Movement. Here is Hayden's response to the question According to the text, in what ways were black Americans' civil rights being violated? Notice how his answer is complete? He restated and answered the question, cited information directly from the text, and explained his reasoning. Way to go Hayden!

The afternoon class read this letter from a student to Mr. Peralta, a guest speaker who gave a presentation to his class.

Here are thorough answers from two students (or should I say TBR Experts!)...

Awesome thinking Zion and Kaya!

Your assignment this week is to read the passage below. Then, think about the question. Write your response in your notebook, edit it, and k-mail it to me by Friday. 

Do you live in a rural, urban, or suburban area?
Give evidence from the text to support your answer.

Remember to answer the question completely using R.A.C.E. 
Then, check spelling, capitalization and punctuation before k-mailing it to moi.

I look forward to your k-mails!
