After our usual opening dose of pre-writing, students began reading “Tooth and Claw.” As this was the longest story to date, and one of the more complicated, students read short portions interrupted twice completing sections of a handout and discussing what they’d read. Homework: finish reading “Tooth and Claw” and finish the handout.
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.
