Thursday! You know what that means…tomorrow your projects are due!
Today, periods 2 and 5 will return to our final day of Say, Mean, Matter, and then we will go back to our writing strategies.
The rest of us will be reading our novels.
Tomorrow, though, we will be reviewing writing to make sure that we understand the importance of organization. I want you to be prepared for taking notes tomorrow. Rest your hands tonight, because tomorrow they will be busy with work.
We’ve been working on our two poems, “Ozymandias” and “My Papa’s Waltz,” and we will continue working on the 1st chapter of the novel House on Mango Street. You should understand these three texts well by now. If you do, then you will have a lot to say in your essays.
AVID Students, do you have all your missing work on your SWAG Plan?
Our Essential Question today is this: How does organization help my writing?
Here are some links you will need in our class. Next week I will move them to our sidebar:
