After a quick review of the intersection of abstractions and vivid details using a Ted Hughes poem, students began typing poem #1 (A2, B6). This poem is due at 11:59 Monday for A2 and Tuesday for B6. We’ll begin workshop next time. Homework: turn in this poem via Google Classroom on time so I can make your workshop copies for you; if it’s turned in late (excused or unexcused), you must bring in your own copies.
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.
