Students shared their outlines for their Raise Awareness projects, then and began work on them.
I collected the rough drafts of the students' poems. I also explained the Raise Awarness project and passed out the handout and outline. Students had the remainder of the hour to begin work.
Group Poetry Presentations. All students required to take notes on presentations.
Students turned in their notebooks today and posted comments on their blogs about each other's memoirs.
Students worked in the library on the following:
*printing and binding their children's books and letters
*rough drafts of their memoirs (editing sheet/checklist provided)
*organization of notebooks (rubric provided)
We finished discussing how to make a memoir, then we reviewed the memoir assignment, and students began the prewriting activity, "Timeline of My Life."
