18 October: CommonLit Assessment: “A&P” by John Updike


I can evaluate my knowledge of a selection of terms to work toward improving my overall vocabulary and assess my close reading skills using a short story (L 3 & RL 1 & 2).

Entry Task:

As you come in, grab your binder and prepare to play a round of Blooket with our words from vocabulary list 3.

What’s Going On:

Today we will return to the short story “A&P” by John Updike. Using the annotations we did together as a class, reread the story completing the guided questions and the assessment questions on CommonLit. Be sure to use textual evidence in your short answer response.

Exit Task:

Use any remaining time to check your grades and work on any missing or redo work.
