Battle of the Books:
Keep reading and making cards!! The 6th grade Battle is March 22nd here at BRMS. The 7th/8th grade Battle is April 1st at Tabernacle.
6th and 7th grade students learn to make Bibliographies or "Works Cited" Pages in Google Docs in MLA 8 format. Additionally, students are taking digital notes in Google Keep, practicing the 7 X 7 rule (no more than 7 bullets and 7 words per bullet). 7th and 8th graders are beginning to create in-text citations using MLA guidelines. Students learn how to use keywords for searching, and how to identify reliable sources. Direct instruction takes place in a co-teaching model, specifically in 6th grade Health classes, 7th grade Social Studies classes, and 8th grade Language Arts classes.
