8th Grade ELA
Please note...all grammatical errors have been placed there for student revision in class.
Yaaay we will start with an editing warmup. We will then move on to Shurley p. 28. Please complete both of these assignments for Thursday and place them in your journals. We will correct on Thursday before the WTG test. We will also have two amazing presentations on Thursday as well!
Read the article I assigned to you (below). Then, answer the multiple choice questions in your journal. Be certain to label with the date. Then you will write a response to the article (see Focus and Prompt below)
Focus: Use 5 of your WTG words in response to the article that you read.
Prompt: Do you agree, disagree, what are your thoughts?
Time: 10 min.
While you are working on this, I will be conferencing with you about your essays.
