Monday, 3/16 (Gold day only)

Students began class by reading two essays in the Burroway text — “At the Dam” (p. 143) and “A Wind from the North” (p. 145) — and then completing a handout with some questions about these essays. We discussed these two essays, talking about the authors’ use of setting and voice in relation to their subjects. Then students had time to begin their creative nonfiction rough drafts. Homework: I will check rough drafts at the start of class on Wednesday.
