Okay, it's just after Labor Day, and I'm starting to get the hang of this blog thingermajig. Be sure to use your mouse to drop some fish food into the water above for my fish! They'll come a-runnin'.
This week we are concentrating on SIX TRAITS writing which, of course, just means we are starting to work on "writing" in general. Six Traits is just a method to discuss it, so students understand on a deeper level what "good writing" is all about.
Regular and Honors English are doing basically the same thing in the classroom this week:
•pretesting on the 6 Traits
•reading the 6 Traits RUBRIC in detail
•practicing how to score some student papers
•concentrating on Ideas, Organization, & Conventions
•spelling words of the week are : grammar, analyze, amateur, colonel
