Welcome back! I hope you had a nice, relaxing break and that you are ready to get 2017 going! As we come back from break, we will be beginning our persuasive writing unit. Persuasive writing plays a significant role in the world. Want something changed? Think something isn't right? Need people's support for something? Well, persuasive writing and speaking is how you begin that process.
You will have 2 projects to complete in this unit: a persuasive essay and a group created and produced persuasive advertising commercial. These projects will be introduced in more detail in class and posted in Google Classroom.
I'm looking forward to finishing out 2nd trimester with you all before we change to Seminar as we learn the techniques and tricks that make good persuasive writing.
Welcome back! As we reach the middle of the school year, we will be having our mid-year conferences. Conferences begin the week of January 23. Please use the following link to see the requirements for your mid-year conference. Please let me know how I can help you!
