This week, we began our Nonfiction Unit by reading two informational articles about the Black Death (aka The Plague). We examined the different structures of the texts (cause-effect and chronological) and we studied new vocabulary. Also, the students chose a memoir to read as an independent homework assignment. We will be working with the memoirs in February, but I thought they could get started reading them now since the weather is so conducive to reading and relaxing at home.
This is the disclaimer text. It should wrap, then the bar will grow in height if more space is needed. The blackboard footer will center if disclaimer is not being used and the background will be one color.
