Video #7  and Assignment: Study Sync #5 First Read: The Lightning Thief (Part 2)

First, watch Video #7 found on the “Posts” page in TEAMS.

Log in to your school portal, and click on “McGraw Hill” and then “Launch” your Study Sync textbook.  Click the assignment titled “First Read: The Lightning Thief.”  Click the “Read” tab. As we have done many times before, please read the excerpt, and define the boldfaced vocabulary words in the text using the context clues to figure out the meanings (click each word to select it and it will say “Highlight”.  Type the definition into the box and then click “create note”).  When you are done, check the words in the dictionary and edit as needed. 

Finally, answer the “Think” Questions 1-3 using the ACE (answer, cite evidence, explain) method with quotes from the text (3-5 sentences each).  Finally, click “submit” to turn in the assignment in Study Sync.
