We got laptops today! Hurray!

Getting them distributed and everyone connected to Sky Drive took most of the day, so we didn’t have a lesson.

As a reminder about homework for this weekend, first period needs to read pages 24-48 and complete the reading guide (see yesterday’s post). All other classes need to complete the “helicopter scene” writing assignment (see yesterday’s post). A few reminders about that:

  • You need to be describing an actual place, not a made-up region.
  • Your focus for this writing assignment is just description – don’t worry about telling a story.
  • Try using the pre-writing suggestions to help you generate ideas.
  • Remember to start out broad and zoom in.

Please bring me a typed copy on Monday.
