Journal Writing

Turn to the next clean sheet of paper in your writing journal/spiral.

Title it: "How I want to be remembered"

Write today's date in the upper right-hand corner.


Think about this statement:

When my classmates think of me, I want them to think/remember I ...


Write this statement and finish it with explanations and examples. Think about what your classmates (not just your "friends" but all of your classmates) might say when they look back and remember of you from middle school.


You should write for at least 15 minutes without stopping.

You will not be asked to share, but I will be sharing mine when I return to class.

Silent Reading

When you finish with your journal writing, you may silent read.

Remember, your section 3 reading and annotations are due tomorrow when you come to class. You will not be allowed to work with your small group if you are unprepared. You must have your book in class as well.
