All year 7 students have some reading and notes to complete. The deadline is this Wednesday’s session. Each student has a copy of the document in their bag and it has also been shared digitally through google classroom if they prefer to make notes online.
1. Read pages one and two: EVOLUTIONARY CHANGE & DARWIN’S THEORIES
2. CATP Text code in the main body of the text:
C – Connections,
A – Ask questions
T – translate tricky passages into your own words
P – Predict (how did Darwin use this information to come up with the theory of evolution by natural selection)
3. Then complete the note catcher on each of those two pages.
Students have already done the first part of a CLOSE READ and skimmed the document.
