Product Description
These Articles of the Week can be used as bell ringers for the entire year to practice a variety of literacy skills, such as using evidence, summarizing, short response writing, and grammar practice. I have created Articles of the Week that integrate social studies standards, specifically the TN Ready social studies standards for 5th grade.

My Articles of the Week are used for a variety of purposes, including:
• Increasing comprehension and retention of content related texts.
• Add rigor and depth to content related reading.
• Require students to actively engage in learning content presented.
• Make challenging texts more accessible.
• Improve thinking through written responses.

The procedure for Articles of the week is simple. Students read the article on Monday and answer comprehension questions. On Tuesday, they read another short related article and edit it for grammar mistakes. On Wednesday, they answer questions related to finding evidence in the text. On Thursday, the focus is on main idea and summarizing. Finally, on Friday, students must write a short response using the A.C.E. strategy. An A.C.E. helper is available to help students with the short response.

AOWs are a vital part of my classroom. I encourage you to give them a try in your classroom. Articles of the Week are a great routine to incorporate a variety of literacy skills across the content areas.
