Hey hey everyone,

Today is a double post – some info from yesterday as well as what we’re doing today! So, let’s get started!

Yesterday read a CommonCore reading about outbreaks, pandemics and epidemics and answered corresponding comprehension questions. These questions required a little bit more than normal proved rather challenging for some of my students. Afterwards, students worked on 8.L.1.2 Performance Task in which they were to analyze data about pandemics throughout the last century and create a graph to represent how the fatalities of pandemics has decreased over the time.

Today, 1st block was occupied with MAP Testing in reading, so they’ll have to complete the stations review prior to taking our Pathogens & Disease unit test. The rest of my classes were able to complete 4 stations as a review for our unit test, tomorrow!
