Writing: W8.3 This week we will be participating in writing workshops. We will use the mentor text, "Fences," by David Rowe.

Monday: We will discuss context and point of view to introduce characters.

Tuesday: We will use narrative techniques such as dialogue, pacing, description, and reflection to develop experiences, events, and/or characters.

Wednesday: We will learn to use transitions to indicate a signal shift in the story, use precise words and sensory words, and provide a conclusion to our narratives. 

Thursday & Friday: Students will implement all the techniques learned this week to their narratives to improve their writing. Final narratives will be a test grade.

 

Cornell Notes: We are learning Cornell notetaking skills. You may see the forms tab for our recent notes.
