We're going to learn more about how to answer short answer and essay questions today!


Write clearer, more comprehensive answers to short answer and essay questions.

Mr. Maxim will use a powerpoint presentation to teach you today's minilesson, and you can see it here.

Today's assignment

You'll use the Three Guiding Questions to read and answer questions about the Rainbow Loom NewsELA article that we read last week. Everyone will read the same article (which you can see here) but you'll also get a printed copy in class. Everyone will use the same google doc to write their answers, so you can see everyone's answers while you write yours!

Students in 503 should use this document to answer the questions.

Students in 504 should use this document to answer the questions.

What you'll be graded on

  1. Have you answered all parts of the question?
  2. Did you write at least three sentences?
What should my answer look like?

You should review the example answers that Mr. Maxim gave you in class
