Early Release day today and we had a great writing workshop, knocking out the expectations for LEQ intro and body paragraphs and giving a chance for rough drafting, informal peer feedback, and one-to-one questions and critique from me. Hopefully we will see improvements in the thesis statements after this second round of revision. My apologies to those of you in 4th period that did not have electronic versions of your critiques due to website issues. I have the digital file of what I handed you today as commentary so I will try to get those to post once Weebly is cooperating again.
This weekend, you need to prepare Chapter 7 notes for Monday and also write a rough draft of your intro and first body paragraph. Chapter 8 due date has been moved to Wednesday! Also, you will have revisions to the intro and first body paragraph due on Wednesday for peer critique and the final revisions and full draft will be due to be turned in to me next Thursday! Be sure to check out the information on the Writing Tips page if you get stuck and email me if you have questions!
