Week of October 15
Skills: Writing (planning, organization, drafting)
This week we will be working on the writing process. Students will write an explanatory essay as we work through writing expectations on planning, organizing, and drafting. They will analyze writing pieces for structure in introductions, conclusions, and how writers elaborate on text evidence.
Students will have three graded assignments this week: homework on thesis statements, quiz on writing structure and expectations, and a graded essay.
This week is the last week of the quarter. It is imperative that all work be submitted in a timely manner.
Homework: Thesis statement practice (assigned on Wednesday) due Friday, October 19. Writing Quiz Friday, October 19. Study the information in your writing notebook (and the information is also in Curve).
