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.
