This article is written by a roller derby player and addresses themes surrounding learning through failure and embracing failure. I use it as my first article every year. Students love it!
Includes questions that focus on:
Register (language used by a particular group) - vocabulary in context
Making connections between the text and students' lives
Based on Kelly Gallagher's Article of the Week concept, my reading articles are typically non-fiction and modeled on Vale Middle School's format. The articles have been chosen by me and all questions have been developed by me. If you would like to see what Vale Middle School does, check out http://vms.vale.k12.or.us/articles-week
