Article reviews allow students to read non-fiction science based articles and then write a four to five paragraph summary of their findings.  These articles are designed to improve
student reading comprehension and writing skills.  Articles will be accessed
from my "Mr Thornhill's News" within the DoGoNews website.  We will use an article
selection process which assures no two articles will be reviewed within the same
grade level.  We will make every effort to allow the student to choose from a
variety of scientific topics.   

Below are two documents which will help students gain knowledge and have success with this activity.  One of the documents is a template as to how the article review should be structured.  The other document is the scoring guide as to how these articles will be assessed.
