This course is for the 5th Grade literature study of genre.

Over the course of the 2009-2010 school year, 4th and 5th students wishing to participate in the Hough Library Reading Program will be expected to read books of their choice and then post their favorite titles for other students to discuss. Participants must first nominate their title and then comment on it in the online discussion forum.

This is a course which will outline how students may be safe in an online environment.

This is an online classroom for Mrs. Lanan's 5th grade students.  This classroom is devoted to sharing our thoughts and opinions about books that we have been reading.  Students will use guiding questions to begin their discussions, and then they will be able to respond to each other.

This lesson begins with an analysis of what historians can learn from ordinary Americans whose Civil War letters were preserved. Next, students become letter-writing correspondents living in 1863. They will represent a variety of American voices, North and South. As the memorable events of 1863 unfold - the Emancipation Proclamation, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, the New York draft riots - students respond to events and recount how their lives were affected.

This is an online forum for Ms. Tucci's 5th graders.  This is a place for students to write responses based on books they've read independently.  It is also a place to read other's thoughts and make connections with classmates.
