Thursday, January 12th

Today in class, we spent some time discussing our new writing unit- a literary analysis. You learned that it not only ties into argumentative writing, but it encourages you (as a writer) to argue a particular point based on textual evidence. Now will be your opportunity to use your strengths as readers IN your writing too. I have a feeling I will be very impressed!

We discussed the requirements for your upcoming on-demand writing prompt. It not only will give me a chance to see your strengths and areas needed for improvement, but it will most definitely show your ability to consider sentence fluency in this writing assignment. This is another opportunity to show that you can use a variety of sentence structures and beginnings in your writing!

You spent some time brainstorming/planning the best way to respond to the prompt. Many of you then began writing!
