- Dec 13, 2000J,
This will come together but remember that most of the time its a two year
process at least. Teaching Reasoning Through Writing: I did an essay
series on African slavery and inequality. The first was comparing the
commonalities and differences in the slave trade on the west coast and east
coast of Africa using two passages from the book. The second was
interpreting an African story by Kenyatta called "The Man Who Shared His
Hut". It was about the colonization of Africa by the Emperialistic European
Powers. The third was a persuasive letter dated before independence to then
President de Klerk asking for a pardon for Nelson Mandela. Maybe this
wasn't the best but I did receive my scores Dec 1 and passed.
Just use what is in your curriculum but assign the types of activities the
NB is looking for.
Read instructions again and again and answer each question. Also, try to
address every standard in the lesson, if possible.
Prayers for you,
Carolyn from NC
