Monday - We will review and share our TWIST analysis of coming of age songs. Using writing territories, we will explore our own personal resources for writing materials. You and your classmates will contribute to a coming of age poster.
Tuesday - Listen and Learn day! Please bring your devices and headphones. You will use a graphic organizer to develop the plot of your coming of age story. Using the organizer, your brainstorming from Monday and my feedback from your previous stories you will write a rough draft. Anything you don't finish in class will be homework. You will need to enter class on Wednesday with a completed rough draft!
Wednesday - You will start with a self-reflection of your rough draft and review the editing learning stations. You will decide which three you will visit during the class period. We will have peer editing stations focused on the following:
- Revision Rewind
- Diction Experts
- Characters Wanted
- Conflict Resolution
- Old Skool Grammar
- The Imagery Challenge
Thursday - Media Center Orientation. This will be a fun session where we will meet in the Media Center. You will get to know the resources and information that are available to you. We will also introduce our Drop Everything and Read program. You will select a text to read and take a Shelfie!
Friday - We will meet in Computer Lab 907 and you will type and submit your final draft for your coming of age short story.
ANY makeup work from this unit is due by FRIDAY Sept 1st.
