I hope everyone found time to enjoy some nice weather over break. As we welcome students back and return to our normal routines, this week we will continue to read Nothing But the Truth. We also have three RDWs this week and a quiz on Friday. Additional materials will be posted on the class website throughout the week.
RDW#1 – Write 3 compound sentences, 3 complex sentences starting with dependent clauses, 3 complex sentences starting with independent clauses, and 3 compound-complex sentences. (Circle dependent marker words, box FANBOYS, and highlight commas)
RDW#2 – How are lies beginning to snowball in Nothing But the Truth? (Highlight transitions)
RDW#3 – Is media sensationalism the same as lying, and is it okay for news sources to exaggerate events in order to increase ratings and viewers? Use evidence from the article and Nothing but The Truth to support your opinion. (Highlight text evidence)
Friday – Quiz and RDWs due
April 30th – Book projects due
Have a nice week!
