Check out this article! With the Literacy Test taking place tomorrow I thought this might give you a chuckle! We’ll use the news article as the foundation for an activity tomorrow.
I was looking for some support material tonight to help you with the News Report. I found this great document created in the Halton District School Board. It outlines some good points for your consideration and offers some samples with corresponding scores and explanation to help you assess your work this week. Let me know if you find these helpful.
This one from Peel is good, too!
