9th Grade English
We just finished a unit on reading analytically. An article on hip hop was the focus. Students learned to highlight text with a focus and annotate.
:The students seemed to really enjoy this unit in which they finished the unit writing a rhetorical precis as well as a response to the article we read. Students have also been learning new vocabulary words, as well.
