Mansfield Literature for Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

Good morning 8th graders,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend and are ready for Spirit Week 2: The Spiriting Continues! Today is Feed Your Spirit Food Drive Tuesday, so check out the school website for more details. Remember to share your spirit (and pictures) with Mrs. Skokan!

Okay, now for your Literature work – you have two tasks to complete today:

  • What Teachers Make – Text vs. Performance Assignment (20 minutes)
  • Daily reading (20 – 35 minutes)

And away we go!

  1. What Teachers Make – Text vs. Performance Assignment (20 minutes)
    • Go to the assignment on Teams
    • Read the text of “What Teachers Make” by Taylor Mali
    • Listen to Taylor Mali’s performance of the same poem
    • Answer the questions in the assignment
    • Submit your responses on Teams by the end of the day today
  2. Daily reading (20 – 35 minutes)
    • Read for 15 to 30 minutes
    • Complete your entry in your reading log and put extra thought and effort into the Evidence column
    • Contact me with any questions

Have a great day and remember to reach out if you need help. I look forward to seeing your spiritedness (if that’s a word) online!
