English 10 B
Week 5 April 2-6
A week for writing!
What's Ahead This Week
Monday No School
Tuesday Colon usage was abandoned last week! We ARE going to return to this grammar concept on this day because students will be required to use a colon correctly in their own literacy narrative. We will review and practice in class and there will also be homework given. Then, I will introduce the requirements for the literacy narrative assignment. You can download the assignment sheet from the link below.
Wednesday We will check the homework from the previous day and then jump into some quick writing prompts for the literacy narrative. These writing prompts should get students thinking and brainstorming about what their essay will be about. There will be in-class writing due this day.
Thursday We will begin class with a test over colon usage. Then, we will practice ways to begin the literacy narrative. We will "try out" a few essay hooks using writing prompts in class. There will also be in-class writing due this day.
Friday Writing day! After SSR, students will have the entire class period to work on writing their literacy narrative. I will be checking in with each student to ensure they have a topic and direction. Their first drafts will be due on Monday!
