8th Grade ELA
Please note...all grammatical errors have been placed there for student revision in class.
If you have NOT yet handed in Complex Sentences Homework, please do that now.
Today's test is this:
Choose your best journal entry from The Giver. Type your response into a Word document. Edit as you need, and then upload the document to Grammarly. After editing with Grammarly, re-save the edited version of your document. Be certain to put it in MLA format, reformat as needed and then print. Remember font size, alignment etc. If you have forgotten for any reason, see the links at the right. Remember to save the revised document either to Google Docs or your Z drive. Then print, only when you have finalized your draft.
After you print your document, hand it in to Mrs. Pfaff along with your WTG homework. You will then be given your WTG test (remember to complete the back side as well).
Once you are finished with your WTG test, hand it into the bottom pocket and prepare to work on planning for Genius Hour, work on WTG Lesson 14, or read ahead in The Giver.
