Today students were introduced to a new writing assignment. We’ve just finished the class novel “My Side of the Mountain“. It’s a classic adventure story about a boy who survives a year in the Catskills, on his own! The writing assignment gives the students an opportunity to respond, reflect and elaborate upon the character’s experience. Tonight students were asked to plan out their stories, using a short form. They were asked to begin a draft of the story, but are not at all required to complete that draft tonight! FYI – The form also includes details about the actual writing assignment.
Students were again reminded to study for Thursday’s SS test. They were given a block today to study in class as well.
