Talk About It
Please feel free to review the Introduction to Students with your child.
We’re going to whiz through the first several lessons in this book, so a note of encouragement: don’t worry about super deep comprehension of the lesson readings! We will go over and discuss the key ideas during class, as well as continuing to reinforce them over the year. 🙂
Tell It Back can either be done in oral form (student narrates back to you what they’ve learned) or written form (student writes their answers to the Tell It Back questions without referring back to the text as much as possible).

Current Writing & Rhetoric book
Pen or pencil
Notebook of some type to use as a Commonplace Book
