Product Description
This Article of the Week can be used as a bell ringer 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. This Article of the Week is an informational text about the building of the Transcontinental Railroad and the role immigrants played in its construction.
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.
