Publishing Simple Machines Editorials


This lesson is very similar to Module 2A, Unit 3, Lesson 15. This lesson is largely dependent on each student having access to a computer, online dictionary, and a printer.

Set purpose: Remind students that they will be sharing their published editorials with an audience, their classmates. Tell them that in order to publish their editorials, they need to be sure everything is complete and correct. Today they will have time to polish their writing. Remind them that they now have an edited draft complete with their revised beginning and ending. It is on this draft that they will correct their conventions.

Bilingual Language Progressions

These resources, developed by the New York State Education Department, provide standard-level scaffolding suggestions for English Language Learners (ELLs) to help them meet grade-level demands. Each resource contains scaffolds at multiple levels of language acquisition and describes the linguistic demands of the standards to help ELA teachers as well as ESL/bilingual teachers scaffold content for their English learning students.
