Tuesday, September 29th

English 421:

  • We continued an overview of the 6 traits of writing, focusing on organization.  Students looked back to yesterday’s story, “Mirror Image”, and discussed how the author organized her ideas.  See the 6 Traits Overview slideshow for details and questions.
  • Students then began plotting out their stories on a storyboard.  Blank templates of the storyboard can be found on the English 421 page.
  • REMINDER: a complete draft of the narrative writing assignment is due on Friday for peer revision.

English 431:

  • We looked at a graphic story today – “John Joseph: The Boy Whose Last Name is a First Name”.  Students worked on a question sheet, and also began writing the next scene.
  • REMINDER: All September portfolio items are due tomorrow.  There will be some class time given to organize materials, and the rest spent finishing up the John Joseph stories, and then reading a news article.
