April 1-8

All year we have been working on theme and central idea. Your job is to find two texts to read. They can be newspaper articles, magazines, poems, online articles, anything you want to read. One text must contain a theme and the other text a central idea. You need to find two pieces of evidence for each text that supports your theme and central idea. Once you have identified the theme and central idea for your text and have two pieces of evidence per text, you need to type a color-coded paragraph for each reading. Be sure to include all the colors and e-mail me your two paragraphs when completed!

If you are having trouble finding texts, here are two sources that we have used in class for online texts. www.newsela.com class code: SJ28A8 https://scope.scholastic.com/ class code: lucasmcs
