Today was our first day of full-class workshop on Poem #1. I explained the process and expectations for workshop, and then modelled the type of feedback I want every student to give to each other. Homework: If your poem got workshopped, review everyone’s notes and comments while they’re still fresh.
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.
