Today is your last chance to work on Friday #23. Please note that this is a full 5-paragraph essay. It needs to be complete and be proofread for grammar and mechanics.
Today is the last day to work on the research final draft (due Friday). You can also use the time to finish up Friday #12.
Weekly list- Each week I will post a Padlet and a question. Add your thoughts (including your name). When I approve and post the responses, I will remove your name. Check out this week’s list below.
Paragraph structure- The focus will be on finding a topic sentence and putting supporting details in logical order.
Unsmashing paragraphs- The focus with this activity is how to divide a huge chunk of text into paragraphs.
Handouts for both activities are in Classroom.
This tab is updated! Go read some of the cool stuff your classmates have written.

Today we will focus on revisions to the Fiction Skills essay.
Pds 2&5- Focus on revising for smoothness. Some of these read very choppy and needed better transitions. Also, I wrote down my Top 5 most common errors, which are below.
1. It’s “versus” not vs. Write out that word.
2. Title format- Of Mice and Men
3. Capital letters!
4. No 1st (me, my, we, I) or 2nd person (you, your)
5. “I feel” or “I think” makes your paper sound weak.
