Next week we will continue our new unit; Making a New Nation. Unit 3 lesson 3 is an expository text; The Master Spy of Yorktown. This story is a historical story about James Armistead, a slave turned spy during the American Revolution. We will read about his bravery and his talent as a 'master spy.' Our comprehension strategy will be predicting and making connections. Our comprehension skill will be drawing conclusions. In grammar we will finish up plural and singular possessive nouns and move on to comparative and superlative adjectives. We will finish our research on an event on the American Revolution and write our newspaper article.
Students should be thinking about these questions throughout the week.
What type of person do you think Armistead was? Use information from this selection and your own opinion.
If you had been Armistead, would you have done the things he did? Why or why not?
