Poem A Day:
Today’s poem is not a poem. It’s an image.
Students were to react to the photo in their notebooks. Then we discussed ways photographs and video and audio can be manipulated to distort meaning. The goal is to induce critical thinking.
Today’s Objective: Students will analyze strategies used by authors of nonfiction texts to convey meaning including diction (word choice), graphics/images, organization (layout, headings, etc.).
We share out answers and I filled it in on my document. I posted this to Google Classroom for the students to reference as we move through the unit.
Students use their personal choice articles to complete a blank version of the same worksheet.
Review the objective and check for questions. Students finish work at home.
