Substitute Meets Upfront ;-)

Unexpectedly OUT for a day?  I’ve got the universal sub-plan for you!

Absence Happens...

Absence Happens…

If you’re a subscriber to Upfront Magazine, this will be especially beneficial, but honestly, the linked handout can align with virtually ANY current events magazine you provide for your kids!

MATERIALS:

EMERGENCY LESSON PLAN:

  1. Distribute the __ edition of Upfront (or other) Magazine
  2. Distribute the Core Ideas handout
  3. Ask students to first survey ALL articles in the magazine before choosing ONE to focus on for the assignment.
  4. Students must select ONE article from the magazine and complete the corresponding questions contained in the Core Ideas handout.

ADDITIONAL TASKS:

  • Have students create a FactFinder Flashcard using the Summary format
  • Have students Journal about the topic by voicing their thoughts in response to what they read
  • Have students formulate an overall opinion about the issue, then complete an Opinion-Proof argument in response
  • Picture Notes it!

Collaboratively Yours,
