After two pre-writing activities, students returned to Google Classroom and the poems they typed up last class. First, everyone perused the poems typed by their classmates, chose three to read, and them commented in the document with their own questions, observations, and discussion of imagery. After finishing this activity, everyone returned to their own poem, paraphrased it, and identified imagery here. Homework: finish these activities on Classroom if you didn’t get them done in class.
This class will be an opportunity for you to express yourself creatively through writing. You will get a chance to try many different genres of writing and practice the writing process. You will get to help others improve their writing, and the favor will be returned to you with your own writing. By the end of the class, you will develop a portfolio of your best, most polished work.
Note: I teach two sections of this class on different days. When possible, I will use the same entry for both Red and Gold days. When impossible, I will post a separate summary for each day.
