Welcome back from a much needed break! I hope everyone enjoyed their vacation. We are getting back to our routine of writing and reading. Students will be finishing the final draft of their essays so we can start typing this week. We will review short stories and have the final test on this at the end of this week. Please make sure that students have added detail to their stories. They may need to eliminate unnecessary events. Student should also have important dialogue in their story. I look forward to reading all of the narratives soon!
