Hello Doctor!  Today students (except Block 4) performed surgery on the rough draft they had written yesterday.  A step be step process was completed to make revisions.  I hope this set the expectation that Social Studies writing is serious business and that the writing process is part of what we do!


Blocks 1,2, 3, and 5;  Final copy due on Monday!  Be sure to check the rubric!

Block 4-finish your rough draft ONLY!
