Wednesday, October 26th

Today I will be out at a meeting. Please help the guest teacher in any way you can. :)

Goals: To reflect on your writing so far, and to reflect on how you can improve.


1) Log in to turn it in.  Look at the comments on your last two writing assignments. Look at the rubric, as well.

2)  After you have done the above, please fill out the Google Form.  It will be based on thoughtfulness, truthfulness, and thoroughness.  Take your time, and make sure to elaborate as much as possible.

3) With remaining time, you may work on the narrative you would like to finish. It should be no longer than two pages.  Make sure to use to think about yesterday's lesson as you are writing! Use vivid verbs, specific words, and a variety of sentence types. Your story should have a beginning, middle, and an end.  The ROUGH draft is due on Friday. It should be DOUBLE-SPACED, and I would prefer that it is printed.
