Survey for Excel on Monday, 11/11:
3rd Six Weeks extra credit opportunities have been added to the website. Complete one now before you need it!
Literary Nonfiction Piece
In class, students are working on a piece of literary nonfiction. Their finished story must include dialogue, sensory details, thoughtshots, effective paragraphing, and both expressive and reflective writing. This is not a homework assignment. However, if they are absent or get behind in class, they may need to work at home or during Excel to finish. We will be turning in the finished products during class on Tuesday, October 22nd.
Picture retakes are Tuesday, 10/22 during lunch. If you have your original photo packet, bring it. If you need a new one, go to the office.
