We started our new unit today — Creative Nonfiction. Students did some new pre-writing to start developing ideas for their nonfiction essays. Then everyone read “The Inheritance of Tools” and completed a related assignment on Google Classroom. Anyone who finished early had some time to work on revisions to Poems 2 and 3.
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.
