I collected the nonfiction planning documents at the start of class and checked these while students worked through reading and pre-writing from Burroway’s chapter on setting. I returned the planning documents so that students could begin work on their rough drafts. Homework: none due next class, but your rough drafts will be due next Tuesday (Red day)/Wednesday (Gold day).
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.
