Article Week What is Article Week? Article week is a week for articles only! (They are individual things of a class, a particular object or item! Etc.: A specific subject, like, thunderstorms, a biography, ice. Something factual!) What do I participate in Article Week? There are no absolute joining ways, but only to simply enjoy the greatness of literature. There is an order of what must be done in Article Week. You must do them in order: 1. Read 5 articles that you find interesting! (Any non-fiction genre, be it biographies, whatever!) 2. Next, you're going to develop your own question article skills! Choose an article, even if it is one of the previous 5 you have just read, and make up some questions using Bloom's Taxonomy. These are: Knowledge - Recalling specific information. Comprehension - This is understanding what you have read and may contain specific facts. Application - This is using the information you have gathered, this can be used as some of these: modifying, solving something and changing. Analysis - This is using the work's content and comparing it to your own. You may find hidden messages, seeing patterns, etc. Synthesis - This is a where you can create new ideas from old ones. This can consist of generalizing from facts that have been given, drawing conclusions and relating given knowledge. Evaluation - This is where you make judgements of characters, actions, and outcomes for your own personal reflection on how you saw it. And understanding and recognizing subjectivity. You can confirm the value of evidence and make any choices based on logic. 3. Now you're ready for your own article! Research a topic you feel strongly about. Create an interesting article, and then make questions based on Bloom's Taxonomy, then you're done! You must be able to answer your questions with no hesitation. When does it end? Monday 15th September Why are people possibly doing this? Articles are great. Even better is writing your own. Article week helps you gather up those skills. Do I have to participate? By all means, no! This is just for fun and anyone can participate. You do this all by yourself, (with help if you wish) but it's no assignment! Just a personal project. Please move this if it is in the wrong section!
