Earlier I shared the work of the 5th grade English Language Arts (ELA) classes. I have been periodically checking in with these classes to see how they are progressing, As you will remember, at that time our students were busy studying the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Students were exposed to human rights and contemplated how real people and fictional characters responded when those rights were challenged. Having completed that unit, our students have been reading Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan. The objective of this read is for students to continue to analyze characters’ responses to challenges and analyze how Esperanza changes over time. Students were asked to write Two-Voice Poems that contrast the ways that two main characters respond to a similar challenge. Sit back and enjoy these wonderful pieces of work....
These videos may take a minute to load and start playing. They may also begin to all play at once so you will have to pause them. I apologize for this technical difficulty. The uploading of these videos has taken quite awhile, and I wanted to get them posted for the sake of the students.
