IRLA: Independent Reading for MP3

Deep thinking notes as a chart.

Hi Everyone,

During MP3, you will be expected to keep reading independently, keep using all of your reading strategies,  and continue to provide evidence of  “deep thinking” from what you read in your RN.

This deep thinking can be in the form of Post-Its and an elaboration, a chart or Venn diagram and an elaboration, thought bubbles and text boxes and an elaboration, or some other method of your choice and an elaboration.

(If you didn’t already notice, the elaboration is required no matter what type of “deep thinking” you do!)

The elaboration should be typed and should include at least one example of text support (with a page number).  The elaborations help us practice writing about literature and will make literary essays so much easier for you.

I have included a few pictures to provide example ideas for how to set up some of your deep thinking notes and the elaboration.

RN work (deep thinking notes and elaborations) will be due every Friday.  Some weeks we will use the full rubric to score them, and some weeks they will be given a “completion” grade which will be added to your classwork assignments. The grade will go in your Reading Work section in Infinite Campus.

You should always put forth your best effort, no matter how the work will be assessed.

Example elaboration...notice the text support!
