I missed you guys yesterday!
Today we will be continuing working toward writing our definition essay on what heroism is by drafting our function paragraph.
Please do not forget–if you have a revision due to me, they are due tomorrow! 🙂
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! 🙂
