LA: Week of Oct 4th-8th Summary

Date & Time: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 (All day) to Friday, October 8, 2021 (All day)

Monday:  Students will review the Unit 1 Writing Summative Assessment Task and Rubric (these are in Schoology in the Unit 1 Resource Folder).  Students will select which quick write rough draft they would like to continue drafting, editing, and revising to take to a published stage.  Students also have the choice to select an entirely new memoir to begin writing  if they wish with the understanding that they will have a bit more writing to do than if they select a rough draft they have already begun.  Students will also open and review the “Narrative Memoir_Study Copy” doc in Schoology.  This is the doc in which ALL students will type their final memoirs.** FINAL drafts will be due Monday, Oct. 11th.- the assignment is worth TWO summative grades- Criterion B and C.

Tuesday:  Students will review/analyze teacher memoir models in order to “see” what a published draft should look like and include.  (These are in the Unit 1 resource folder in Schoology and linked in the students’ final draft doc in Schoology.)  Students will review the Criterion C rubric strand for sufficient details and sensory description and then focus on adding multiple examples into their memoir final draft (in Schoology).

Wednesday:  Students will review the Criterion C rubric strand for a variety of figurative language and then focus on adding multiple examples into their memoir final draft (in Schoology).


 

Thursday: Students will review the Criterion C rubric strand for thoughtful dialogue and then focus on adding multiple examples into their memoir final draft (in Schoology).
