In class today, we used an anticipation guide to help make inferences about a topic we read an article about.  It was an expository writing example.

It can be viewed here:


For homework, you will select a topic from the list below and make a Power Point presentation with at least 10 slides with key information on the topic. Post the Power Point Presentation to your blog by no later than 8AM on 11/25/11. If you do not have access to a computer and/or internet and Power Point, you may use the machines in the school library before and after school.
