###
Introduction to Character Foils

During this lesson, students will view video clips and read texts that have character foils examples. Students will complete a graphic organizer with evidence that supports their identification of foil characters. Once complete, students will use the information from the graphic organizer to discuss character foils.

###
Metacognitive Approaches to Student-based Learning

In this lesson, students will learn how to make complex inferences and draw conclusions about a work of literary fiction using a combination of text evidence and background knowledge. Using a graphic organizer and a short story, students will record both text evidence and their prior knowledge, and combine these elements to make an inference about the character.

###
Converting Between Measurement Systems

Given a real-world situation with measurements in either metric/SI or customary units, the student will solve a problem requiring them to convert from one system to the other.

###
Finding the Probabilities of Dependent and Independent Events

Given problem situations, the student will find the probability of the dependent and independent events.

###
Recognizing Misuses of Graphical or Numerical Information

Given a problem situation, the student will analyze data presented in graphical or tabular form by evaluating the predictions and conclusions based on the information given.

###
Evaluating Methods of Sampling from a Set of Data

Given a problem situation, the student will evaluate a method of sampling to determine the validity of an inference made from the set of data.

###
Using Multiplication by a Constant Factor

Given problems involving proportional relationships, the student will use multiplication by a constant factor to solve the problems.

###
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Data from a Table

Given data in table form, the student will use the data table to interpret solutions to problems.

###
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Data from Verbal Descriptions

Given data in a verbal description, the student will use equations and tables to solve and interpret solutions to problems.

###
Estimating and Finding Solutions to Problems Involving Similarity and Rates

Given application problems involving similarity and rates, the student will estimate and determine the solutions to the problems.

###
Generating Similar Figures Using Dilations

Given a figure, the student will identify the scale factor used for a dilation, and use a dilation by a scale factor, including enlargements and reductions, to generate similar figures.

###
Using Geometric Concepts and Properties to Solve Problems

Given pictorial representations, the student will use geometric concepts and properties to solve problems from art and architecture.

###
Using Rational Numbers to Solve Problems

Given a problem situation in verbal form, students will select and use an operation involving rational numbers in order to solve the problem.

###
Selecting and Using Appropriate Forms of Rational Numbers

Given real-life problems, the student will select an appropriate method and solve problems involving proportional relationships.

###
Exploring Probability with Dependent Events

The student will investigate and develop the concept of dependent probability, including formalizing procedures related to dependent probability and applications of dependent probability.

###
Thesis Throwdown

After students watch a brief video introducing thesis statements, they will create a class thesis statement checklist, use a prompt to write a personal thesis, compare theirs to others in their group while working to craft and revise a group thesis to present to the class after participating in a Gallery Walk where they provide and incorporate revision suggestions.
