Happy Fourth Week of School!

Goals: Practice editing our work for the best diction.  Build our writing community! Author a masterpiece.


1) Check homework-three memoirs = full credit NO late homework

2) Share our memoirs "Speed Dating" Style- Have your peers help you choose the most meaningful, powerful, appealing memoir.  Work with your table mates to edit your final choice for the best possible word choice. Remember all that we have learned about the connotation of words!

3) Publish your final draft on Google Slides.

  • Requirements:
thoughtful, original, good diction, error free, slide is visually appealing and background complements the memoir.
