expert texts

students began by puzzling over the question "who freed the slaves?" and came up with lots of thoughtful answers. then, we reviewed who henry ward beecher was and what beecher's bibles were. next, we worked together to write a super-thorough answer to the question "how might beecher's background have influenced his life's work?". students wrote answers, checked them with me, and revised. if they had time, students revised their work on the expedition pre-assessment. finally, students selected one of three expert texts (below) to read for homework tonight. 

prepare for tomorrow's reader's theater by reading expert text.
