FLA 7F
    Today we learned what strategies we can used to help up fully understand articles that we read. We worked in 2 different groups, our first set of groups read the strategies and became experts in each strategy. We then redivided into our second set of groups. These groups contained 1 expert from each of the 4 strategy groups. The experts then taught their strategy to their new groups.
  The 4 strategies we worked on today were Visualizing, Verifying your comprehension, Interpreting Photos and Summarizing and Organizing information.
   We will be using these 4 strategies through out this unit as we continue to read articles.

    Today we worked on a few case studies. Students were asked to read a situation and decide weather or not the young offender should be given a extrajudicial measure or sanction. Students were then asked to make a judgment on the penalty that the offender should receive and to justify their reasoning. Most students were able to finish this in class, if they did not it is required that they finish it for homework and hand it in on Monday.

We looked at reasons such as : economy, competition, better quality of life and the freedom of religion. We also looked at where exactly the 13 colonies where in comparison to New France.
