- Students read independently for fifteen minutes and recorded their progress on the weekly reading log.
- After rereading the exemplar essays for their assignment (This I Believe essay or the Common App essay), students answered these Mentor Text Questions.
- For the remainder of class, students brainstormed ideas for their essays by completing two activities:
- Be reading. Meet or exceed your weekly reading goal.
- Summer reading is due this week, September 29-30!
