Day 86 - Friday, January 23, 2015

How is our sense of self defined through Interactions with society?

Hi everyone!  

      Sorry that I am missing out on you this week.  I have been in training. I wanted to let you know that you did GREAT on your benchmark!  At least 30% better than last time!  I am so proud of you!  Thank you for working so hard.  

Today is the essay day.  You only get today (no working at home). I don't expect perfection.  I expect 45 min of work.

                            5 min brainstorm

                            25 min of writing

(5 topic sentences, 3 body paragraphs, then introduction and conclusion)

                            5 of day dreaming

                           10 minutes of editing

Here are the details:


Start a google doc.   Title it "1516 Computers Name". Share it with Ms. Luxmoore.  

Remember to brainstorm, draft, revise and check it for grammar.

Your school is planning to issue laptop computers to ninth graders next year. Do you think this is a good idea? Write to explain why or why not.
