updated: 5/20/2010



LEQ:


What are the various layers of the earth's crust?

- We want you to know the names of the various rock layers, their characteristics, and how scientists have learned about them.

PLAN:

STEP 1: Preview Worksheet. Turn back in.
STEP 2: Work together to learn chapter using online group notes. (individually online using textbook). When done, turn in textbooks.
STEP 3: Meet with your group to discuss online notes, complete worksheet using those notes.


TIPS:

- Jot down notes about what your reading in the notepad below. DO NOT COPY AND PASTE TEXT! Use your reading strategies:
  • Look at text features: titles, headings, bold and italized words.
  • Think about your purpose (questions on worksheet we previewed)
  • Look at the key concepts listed at front of section
  • Think about dividing the text up among your group - coordinate your efforts!


- Choose a line of the notepad to work on separate from the others, so you are not fighting over the same space on the notepad.

- Don't copy sentences word for word from text - paraphrase and summarize, yet be detailed enough that it makes sense later.
