I am pleased with the Oral Communication skills the students, who have volunteered so far, have demonstrated in our Agree/Disagree activity in relation to The Giver.

Before doing a short quiz, to assess the understanding so far with this new concept, the students will play a few online games for fun and review.

Some new vocabulary will need to be introduced to the students to move beyond the instruction we are currently at.

Here are the list of games or tutorials:

This is a brief video walking through the process we have been learning.

Have a good evening.  Thanks for coming to Curriculum Night.
