Students wrote about the evidence of poverty they read in Gang Leader for a Day on the Socrative Student app!
Students are continuing the next set of vocab. Please see the powerpoint on 2/21 for notes.
To continue understanding the vast issue of poverty, we began reading Gang Leader for a Day, which is written by a sociologist that studied the Black Kings control over the Robert Taylor projects in Chicago in the 80s and 90s, before it was torn down.
We read pages 8-25 as a class.
Students began filling out a character chart and a storyboard for what happened in today's reading.
Today, students selected a job and went through the financial process that we did yesterday, to determine if these jobs keep people in poverty or not.
Then, students read "Growing Up Poor in America" and answered questions as a group.
After the assembly, students viewed the videos below, and completed the below sheet.
More vocab! The usual vocab packet applies.
Today was the assessment.

We tried a new app that allows us to play a game to review our SAT vocab! It was super fun!
Also, we practiced our usual worksheet. Tomorrow is the test!
We used our experience with A Modest Proposal to write our own satirical pieces on problems in today's society.
It was great fun!
