      On Friday, we examined a close readi ng through a mentor text.  Students were given the article "The Kids Are More Than All Right" and asked to annotate it for Monday.  This means to write questions, connections, "aha moments", confusions etc on the sides of the text.  We will be taking those comments and questions and writing critical reflections. Critical reflections should be started.  Completion will occur in Tuesday in class.
