It’s August 24. Today in AD 79, Mount Vesuvius, in Southern Italy, erupted and destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii, Stabiae, and Herculaneum. The Ukraine celebrates its independence from the Soviet Union today, which it achieved upon the collapse of that empire in 1991. On this day in 1814, during the War of 1812, British forces raided and burned Washington, D.C.
This week’s Text is a complete introductory lesson plan on pronouns. I begin this lesson, in order to get kids settled after a class change, with this Cultural Literacy worksheet on Fine Arts; if, for some reason, the lesson goes into a second day, I use this Everyday Edit worksheet on Maya Angelou to begin the concluding part of the work for this lesson. The mainstay of this lesson is this introductory worksheet on pronouns. You will probably need, or at least want, the teacher’s copy of the worksheet. Finally, here is a learning support on pronouns and case that I use throughout the unit on pronouns that this lesson introduces.
