In writing we are working on opinion / persuasive pieces.
The students are working in groups to peer edit and then write their final draft. There will be an upcoming writing homework assignment where students will need a visual aid along with their writing to present orally in class. A rubric will home home with directions as well as individual due dates to present.
There are two opportunities for extra credit. One will be a book report option that the students will briefly share in class. The other, will be a non fiction report. We will go over these options in class and the forms will be kept where students can access them whenever they like. These extra credit options are to be completed at home, not in class. They will be for minimal points.
