Readers in Room 123 have begun a new unit of study: biographies. We will be reading first to learn about others, summarizing what the author thinks is important to know about their lives. Thomas Edison was the subject of our first biography.
We summarized important information…
…and learned more about the phonograph and early movies.
Then readers analyzed our notes, identifying the challenges Edison faced and how he responded to them. Students inferred character traits from those actions.
Finally, we discussed how we can use what we learned to help us achieve our dreams for the future.
We will continue learning about and from others over the next few weeks.
