Explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals, events, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text based on specific information in the text.    

We'll continue talking about relationships in non-fiction texts today. Specifically, we're going to use cause and effect to explain the relationships within these informational texts. Here is what we'll read through in class to learn more about cause and effect. 

Today's assignment

We'll read through another NewsELA article in class, and then answer questions at that website. Based on how you did yesterday, you'll do a different level article/quiz at NewsELA... Here's the groups. 

  1. Mild People - Do the 550L Assignment
  2. Medium People - Do the 750L Assignment
  3. Hot People - Do the 1000L Assignment

What you'll be graded on?

For the NewsELA assignment, you'll be graded on your score on the multiple choice question quiz that comes at the end of that assignment.

Need Extra Help?

  • You can walk through this lesson, which will show you more about cause and effect.

Finish early?

Continue to work on your "Personal Dictionary" google doc. You can add the "Word Wall" words that are on the wall in Mr. Maxim's classroom.
