Today we took the academic language pretest. This simply gives me an idea of where everyone's knowledge base is regarding academic language, so I can see how I need to tailor my lessons within this unit.
The same text will be administered when the unit is complete to determine growth and learning.
Homework: Students were given a leveled article and are to complete a mind map. Due Monday.
This is the seventh year Mrs. DeWitz has taught Freshman. It is her eighth year at Thornton.
