Students are continuing to work on "What makes good writing" with continuously looping back to process, purpose, organization - especially attention grabbing leads and conclusions that sum up the writing, and now we will be exploring details through dialogue, verbs, word choice, and 'exploding the moment'. All of this writing practice will culminate in a writing piece based on the National Public Radio program called This I Believe. Students choose a topic that fits the criteria of a personal narrative such as the ones that can be found at the following link:
These writing pieces may be submitted to the website to be published and they will eventually become the basis of our next unit on PUBLIC SPEAKING!
