Fall Back Into Education

Students are settling back into the routines of school well. For the month of September, we are focusing on mini-lessons of essential writing skills. Students are further developing such specific talents in regards to thesis statements, terrific topic sentences, confident conclusions, quote usage and integration, passive vs. active voice, formal vs. informal tone, and powerful word choice. Students responded to a writing prompt on their summer reading memoir, Discovering Wes Moore, and will be polishing and updating their ever improving writing prompt draft as we apply each new skill to it.
