02:21 of class today , we're gonna be working on a
02:23 critical thinking article . Kind of switching gears a little
02:26 bit , but I think it's a very important topic
02:30 that I think most of you will be interested in
02:33 reading about . It's about violence happening along the border
02:37 . Okay . All right , guys , at this
02:40 time , I'm gonna set my timer for 20 minutes
02:43 of work . You can work together in the center
02:46 . You will see what to draw with crayons .
02:49 I would recommend drawing with pencil first because I kind
02:52 of messed up a lot whenever I'm drawing and then
02:54 go over it with the crowns or if you have
02:56 colored pencils or other supplies , like stickers . I
03:00 saw some kids bring those in . You can use
03:02 those as well . All right , guys , if
03:05 you were absent yesterday , try asking your neighbor what
03:09 we were doing . If you can't come up with
03:11 the theme , I will help you with that theme
03:13 . Okay . All right . Go ahead and get
03:15 to work . I'll start my timer right now .
03:18 Joseph , I'd like you to look through that chapter
03:22 . Chapter three . Okay . Yeah , Chapter three
03:25 . And you're gonna see a very important quote there
03:28 About halfway in . When you guys find it ,
03:32 talk to each other about it . I'd like you
03:34 to draw your poster based off of that theme .
03:36 Okay ? Of course . Any direction does not matter
03:41 to me . Use the novels if you need them
03:44 for quotes . All right , so since you got
03:47 this done , let's work on the final copy of
03:49 it now , Okay . You don't need to add
03:50 more detail . I think that looks good enough to
03:52 work with . Okay . Um , very good .
03:58 Excellent . So whenever you go over this , make
04:00 sure it's bold with your crowns . Okay . Good
04:02 job . Two . Louise , do you have your
04:07 rough draft ? Ready ? Okay , basically . Good
04:10 job . You got your bare bones ready to rock
04:12 and roll . Excellent . Well , art supplies at
04:14 this table . Love it . Did you find what
04:19 happened ? What's going on ? Cramer couldn't catch any
04:23 founder . Good . And what did treat your failed
04:26 to do you failed to bring up . Failed to
04:28 bring in food . Do you remember when he didn't
04:30 bring Kramon food ? Maria , how did he feel
04:33 about that ? Guilty . Guilty ? Sad . So
04:38 what did he decide to do then ? Uh ,
04:41 exactly . So he learned to share with others .
04:46 Okay . Being generous towards other , that should be
04:50 your theme . Okay , so go ahead and write
04:52 down on your piece of paper . Here . You
04:56 know something about showing generosity towards others okay . Sharing
05:00 with others . That will be the main title of
05:03 your poster sharing with others . Exactly . That sounds
05:07 like a good title . All right , sweetie .
05:16 So what do we find from chapter three ? Let's
05:19 see , because I'm gonna have you focus on that
05:21 theme . Okay ? Skim this page and see what
05:24 lesson tree are learned in this page . Right ?
05:27 When you start skimming it , you should see right
05:29 away . Remember this scene ? Okay , there you
05:32 go . So I probably focus on this line right
05:34 here . He made it all right . He survived
05:37 the night . He didn't get carried off to the
05:39 baby's layer and get eaten . Okay , He survived
05:42 . Good job . No . Since you use this
05:45 as your title , I would stray away from that
05:48 . But think about how he learned it . What
05:51 animal taught him this ? The fox . So find
05:54 a line that shows that he survived the night with
05:57 the fox without getting killed . The way you treat
06:01 years learned to not share secrets that are not kiss
06:04 to see it . Very good . We would put
06:06 it into a quote that would yeah . So Member
06:09 Crane man's quote . What did he tell him ?
06:12 Well , I don't expect you . Yeah . You
06:15 know what ? I'm talking about the right . I
06:17 would probably use that quote , and then your picture
06:20 should be interesting from this . I'm I'm interested to
06:22 see that , you know , have I learned I
06:26 really got to me . It was like that .
06:31 So I make kind of a C first , and
06:34 then I go inside this way , Okay . See
06:37 if you can make it happen with that . Now
06:40 , when I do that , whenever it looks a
06:41 little , I just make it part of it .
06:43 Make all the other one's a little bit crooked ,
06:45 and it'll work . Okay , Little imperfections . You
06:48 can see a lot with it . You can work
06:50 with it . Okay . Oh , you're right .
07:01 And this is Oh , dear . Yes . Or
07:07 is it like I'm doing my picture right here ?
07:11 Yes . I like how you're setting that up .
07:14 Very nice . It does look like a fox .
07:17 Maybe with a bushy tail . So it doesn't look
07:19 like a Chihuahua . It could be your walking that
07:22 fine line between Chihuahua and Fox . So a bigger
07:24 tail , Bigger tail . Very good . So that's
07:27 your why ? It's important . So next you need
07:30 Yeah , the page number . So I know where
07:33 you got that ? And then tell me down here
07:35 why ? That's important . And then work on your
07:36 picture . Okay , Very good . Let me see
07:40 at the end of the sentence about seven minutes of
07:45 work , and then we'll switch to our article .
07:51 All right , guys , on the board is the
07:53 title of the article we are going to be reading
07:56 today . Three young girls killed in Mexico . I'm
07:59 sorry . Mexico Border attack first . Before we begin
08:04 reading , I want to get you kind of familiar
08:06 with what's going on . So please write down news
08:09 clip news clip when you're finished watching this news clip
08:20 and it's very fast , it's about a minute and
08:22 a half long . You're going to write down what
08:25 happened in this news clip . What was the reporter
08:29 trying to get across the message ? Alright , so
08:32 turn your chair so you can see the board .
08:35 You're fine . Mexico's more among crime cartels escalated this
08:41 week as rival gains battles for control of drug and
08:44 human trafficking routes at a ranch in northern Mexico .
08:48 Authorities discovered the worst massacres since President Felipe Calderon took
08:52 office in 2000 and six bodies of 72 Central Americans
08:56 believed to be headed to the U . S .
08:58 Experts say the level of brutality is on the rise
09:02 , but they have no sense of fear that the
09:07 governing authorities are going to come after them hold them
09:10 accountable for the violence is highly concentrated . More than
09:13 half the country's drug related killings are happening in seven
09:16 of Mexico's 32 states . The bloodiest battles are centered
09:20 around key access points to the US along border areas
09:24 and port cities . They're businessmen . They're fighting over
09:28 control of routes but also access points into the world's
09:33 largest market for illegal drugs . In an unprecedented move
09:37 , the State Department ordered US diplomats in the northern
09:40 city of Monterrey business hub with close US ties to
09:45 send their Children home . Mexican officials have been targeted
09:49 as half journalists . The Committee to Protect Journalists say
09:53 at least 24 have been assassinated in Mexico since 2000
09:56 and six . The U . S is sending more
09:58 than 500 National Guard troops to the Arizona Mexico border
10:02 . The first units are set to arrive Monday ,
10:04 but experts believe unless U . S demand for illegal
10:08 drugs and illegal workers decreases , the violence will continue
10:12 . We need to take some responsibility . All right
10:16 , guys , at this time , please write down
10:19 what was going on in this news clip . What
10:22 was the important message ? What's happening along the border
10:27 ? Okay , just a quick sentence . About 30
10:35 more seconds . When you're done , put your pencil
10:37 down so I know you're ready . All right ,
10:40 guys , at this time , I need you to
10:42 read to yourself out loud what your message was .
10:47 You're not reading to your neighbor . Your reading it
10:50 out loud just to make sure it makes sense .
10:52 When you're done , I'm going to call on a
10:54 couple kids to tell their group what they wrote down
10:58 . This is your practice for it . Ready ?
11:01 You should see it in front of you . Sets

11:24 respect . Ready , Set . Go on . The
11:29 border people are dying and three people died , And
11:33 also drugs are passing to the board . Very good
11:37 . Next , I need my number one . Since
11:40 there's no number one , I'd like the number three
11:43 to go at that . Back table ready sets go
11:48 to the games were fighting for the control of drug
11:53 trafficking roads with a raise of hands . Please tell
11:56 me if you are doing critical thinking articles in your
11:59 first period where you have to highlight and read different
12:04 are good . We got enough kids in here that
12:06 know what's going on so we can help each other
12:08 out on the board . You're gonna see the steps
12:12 on how to do a critical thinking article . First
12:15 step , What do we do to the paragraphs number
12:19 ? So at this time , please , quickly number
12:22 the side of the paragraph . You should have 6123456
12:32 And then we're ready for our first read . Mhm
12:36 . For the first read , you will need your
12:38 pencils . Okay . When we read this article ,
12:43 what do we circle ? The what ? Not main
12:47 ideas Yet people is one of them and places .
12:51 Okay , that's what I would like you to focus
12:53 on for this particular article . If you get confused
12:56 about what's going on , I have that on the
12:59 board . Okay , so let's look at this first
13:01 paragraph , please Listen to me . As I read
13:04 this introduction paragraph . Three Young Girls Killed in Mexico
13:09 Border Attack Gunmen opened fire on six Children playing in
13:15 the yard of a home in the border city of
13:17 Ciudad Juarez , killing three girls aged 12 , 14
13:22 and 15 , prosecutors said Thursday . Three other Children
13:26 in the yard were not hit by the bullets in
13:28 the Wednesday attack . Some were as young as eight
13:33 . So look at the first sentence . Who's our
13:35 first person or group ? We got gunmen who did
13:39 ? The gunman opened fire on Good . And where
13:43 were they playing and what city ? What is What
13:49 is good ? Okay , there were other kids involved
13:53 . How many other kids ? Three other Children in
13:57 the yard were not hit . Some were as young
14:01 as eight . Okay , so that's what my first
14:04 paragraph looks like here . Okay , so let's look
14:08 at the second paragraph . Let's have Lynette read to
14:12 the class . Do your best with the pronunciation of
14:15 these okay , that have killed more than 6000 people
14:18 that past two years . In several instance , youths
14:22 have been killed just because they were in the same
14:25 home as a gunman's intended target . Very nice reading
14:29 at this time , guys , please look at this
14:31 paragraph and circle the people and places that you see
14:35 . Okay , Sure . You're circling the places ,
14:39 and then the people . Okay , so go ahead
14:41 and practice with this paragraph . Number two . Good
14:49 . All right , guys . So we got a
14:51 place restated . Where's this at ? Say that ,
14:55 Juarez . Okay . It's a northern Chihuahua state .
14:59 This is right under New Mexico . This is right
15:01 next to Sonora . How many people have been killed
15:05 ? More than 6000 . By who ? Drug cartels
15:11 . Please make sure you have drug cartel circles .
15:15 Okay . What about the young people that are involved
15:19 in this ? Are they being targeted because of their
15:21 age , or what's happening ? Well , we got
15:24 a hand over here . Go ahead , sir .
15:25 Because like , they probably like the targets . Probably
15:30 one of their parents or something . Very good .
15:32 The And they just happened to be there . It
15:34 seems like these guys have no mercy . If you're
15:36 there and you're moving , you're being shot at in
15:40 a yard at a birthday party . It just they
15:43 don't care . All right , this is a big
15:45 deal . That can be very scary for kids down
15:47 there , so please make sure you have youth circled
15:51 and then gunmen and targets . All right , guys
15:56 , I would like you to continue to circle as
16:00 I finish reading this article anytime you hear what name
16:06 or place circle that puppy . Okay , alright ,
16:10 guys . Starting with paragraph three . The Chihuahua state
16:14 prosecutor's office said in a statement that the gunman in
16:18 the Wednesday attack were apparently targeting the father of two
16:21 of the dead girls in a dispute that may have
16:24 involved low level drug dealing . Just like was said
16:27 earlier , Two of the dead girls were sisters ,
16:30 and the third victim was their friend . Three other
16:34 use whose ages ranged from 13 to 15 were wounded
16:39 in a shooting attack in Ciudad Juarez on on a
16:42 vehicle . State prosecutors said the three adults in the
16:45 vehicle were attacked or killed in that same attack .
16:49 Other violence . So when we say other violence ,
16:52 is this going to happen and what is our other
16:54 places ? Let's see what's happening . Also Thursday ,
16:59 gunmen killed the head of a state police agency that
17:02 prosecutes car thieves in the western state of Jalisco .
17:07 Um , I think it's Court and Alderete were traveling
17:11 in the state owned Dodge Ram , apparently en route
17:15 to their jobs when gunmen fired on them . Investigators
17:20 found about 109 millimeter and 7.62 million millimeter shell casings
17:27 at the scene . Those type of bullets are fired
17:31 by assault rifles and machine pistols favored by drug gangs
17:36 . Violence has spread and Jalisco recently as rival gangs
17:41 battle for control . On February 12 , armed men
17:46 attacked the Guadalajara nightclub , killing six people and wounding
17:50 dozens more . In the Pacific coast resort of Acapulco
17:55 , police reported finding a man's body in five plastic
18:00 bags . Mhm . All right , pause . Even
18:08 if you're not finished circling , turn over your paper
18:12 . Now I imagine that most of you have some
18:14 sort of reaction to what's going on from what you
18:17 read and what you've seen in the news clip .
18:20 Please write down your reaction to this article . How
18:24 does this make you feel ? Personally , Maybe you
18:27 have family members that live in Mexico . Maybe you
18:30 have friends that travel there . Maybe you yourself travel
18:33 to Mexico . Please write a reaction to this article
18:38 . If you are unfamiliar with the violence , it
18:40 should be something with that . Maybe you were already
18:43 aware of what's going on . Maybe you're personally affected
18:46 by this when you're finished . Just put down your
18:58 pencil . All right , guys , I would like
19:04 you to please take a couple minutes and discuss as
19:07 a group your reactions . Now , the rest of
19:10 you , as somebody is discussing you should not be
19:13 sitting there daydreaming about who you're gonna date during spring
19:16 break and break up without the end . Okay ?
19:19 I want you to please write down that group members
19:23 reaction . If it's similar to yours , please write
19:27 it down . Anyway , I want to see these
19:29 reactions and how you all are talking with each other
19:32 about a current event that affects a lot of kids
19:36 in this room and a lot of kids at this
19:38 school . Okay ? I'll give you guys about a
19:41 minute and a half to two minutes to do this
19:44 . I'm upset because one of those kids could have
19:47 been a friend and I wouldn't want to lose a
19:49 friend or a family member . This video makes me
19:55 feel scared , because what if we got transport ?
19:58 Sure . You record their reactions showed me to This
20:02 makes me feel scared because they might be heading over
20:06 here to and they might be breaking all their violence
20:10 . I think we need more protection around the border
20:15 . There he is . People should not be .
20:18 People should not be shot . Just because the shooter
20:22 once heard there should not be allowed . I had
20:26 already been aware of the drug lord in Mexico because
20:32 we studied it a little bit . All right ,
20:36 in 54321 Very good class today . I want you
20:42 guys to give yourselves a round of applause . You
20:44 guys did a good job , Beautiful .
