7th Grade Writing
October 2-6, 2017
We will be finishing up the short story “Seventh Grade” and highlighting character trait information. This will help as we work on constructed answers. We will be starting a new piece of writing this week called “Where I’m From”. Students will do most of the writing/drafting at school; however, they may need some prompting or reminders of things or events that show where they have come from. Please have them share their drafts out loud with you, since we are sharing our drafts in small peer editing circles. This helps ease their nerves. Please let me know if you have questions about what we are doing in class.
“Seventh Grade” – short answer response – due 10/6 (ASM)
Where I’m From – rough draft due 10/4
