11.13 Embedded Assessment #2

Good afternoon,

Today we marked our prompt for embedded assessment #2: the definition essay.

We looked at strategies that we will use to write this essay and brainstormed words that might help to expand the vocabulary of the essay.

A couple of you have revisions to complete by this coming Friday 11.17

Please don’t forget to have a copy of The Giver by the end of the week! 🙂
