What a great week back!
This week we hit the re-set button and geared up to do some reflective writing. We started chipping away at the Your Year in Review timeline project, and completed our first two paragraphs.
We used this mentor text by George Saunders to kick things off.
I've reminded you over and over why we're doing this: to practice writing (remember basketball or instrument analogies) and to nudge our writing toward a more mature style. Many of you are remarking on how you feel more comfortable writing for longer periods of time, how your development and description has improved, and for a few of you, how you've learned to make your stories and experiences "come alive." Wow! I'll take that as a win.
Stay the course, kids. You're doing great.
