During the first part of class, students completed a warmup on character names and then used baby name websites to research how fitting those names were. I reviewed details of the short story assignment (A2, B6), particularly Phase 1. Students had some work time to begin their stories either on Google Classroom or on paper. We also played around with my new Writer Emergency Pack near the end of class. Homework: Phase 1 is due at the start of next class.
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.
