1.Article of the week:

The Truth About Binge-Watching 
by Mackenzie Carro

This week's article is from Scholastic Scope.  When we left school, we were focusing on author's purpose and viewpoint, and the author of this article expresses an interesting viewpoint on binge-watching television.  

Read the article by following this link:
https://scope.scholastic.com/issues/2019-20/030120/the-truth-about-binge-watching.html

Our classroom password is woodbridge1.  Once you're finished reading, answer these questions in the Article Responses section of your Class Notebook in Microsoft Teams:

1. What is the author's purpose for writing the article?

2. What is a line from the article that lets you know what the author's purpose is?

3. Write a paragraph responding to the following: Do you agree with the author's viewpoint?  Explain why or why not.

If you need to review your notes on author's purpose, I have posted all of our notes in the Class Materials file in Microsoft Teams. 


2. Writing Prompt of the Week:

Answer this question in the Writing Prompts Section of your Class Notebook in Microsoft Teams:

Think about the favorite thing that you own. Write a descriptive essay to describe this item using words that explain how it sounds, looks, smells, tastes, or feels. Describe it so someone else can picture it in their mind.
