Product Description
In this resource, you’ll find my lesson plans for getting started with an Article of the Week (AoW) routine whose objective is THINKING!

Students will not just be reading articles just for the sake of finding “right” answers to predetermined questions, rather they will be learning to take in facts, synthesize those facts with their own thinking and understanding, and draw conclusions about the world around them. Additionally, they will practice reflecting on their thinking, recognizing that not all questions have one RIGHT answer, and seeing that other people will often view the world differently than they do.

This resources contains:

• One week of detailed, step-by-step lesson plans (with suggestions for further practice)
• A PowerPoint to guide the lessons each day
• Well-designed anchor posters
• Mentor responses from five different “students” to analyze and use as models for completing future AoWs
• A suggested scoring rubric that uses my “3, 2, 1” grading system


Please note, in this resource students will need access to an article from Due to copyright law, I cannot provide this article to you in the resource, but I’ve included links to find it {IT’S FREE} in the resource.

Also, once your Article of the Week routine is established, you will need access to lots of interesting and timely articles to use throughout the year. I do provide links to the sites that I use for finding great articles {these sites are FREE!}, but again, there are no articles provided in this resource.
