Charting Undercover Parent with your group

1. Self Evaluate English Journals
  1. Open your English Journal
  2. Review the English Journal Scoring Guide
  3. Determine how you would score your English Journal. 
  4. PASTE this sentence below into the TOP of your English Journal and be sure it is complete. 
December 2, 2016 Self Score:          
I believe I have earned a ______ <<(Your score 1-5) on my English Journal because_______________________ _______________ <<(Your reasons you think you earned that score.) 

2. Charting the Text: 
Charting a text helps us understand the text better and shows us the structure of the argument.
Well educated readers can separate what the author is saying from what the author is doing.
This will not be easy at first. The struggle is worth it.
  1. Open your copy of Undercover Parent in Google Drive. 
  2. I'll give your group your charting organizers. 
  3. Work together on each section. You need to talk it out. 
  4. For each section determine what the author is saying first then what he is doing. (Do not move on to the next chunk until you have finished saying and doing for the one before it.)
  5. Since you are new at this I filled in some of the boxes for you to help you figure it out. Read them. 
  6. We are doing this one on paper, so if you are absent you will need to see Mrs. R for instructions and materials. 
You should return your group novel to the library. 
Be sure your book review is finished and your English Journal is complete.
All regrade requests must be submitted by 2:30.
