"Well done is better than well said." -Ben Franklin
All you need for writing class (other than something to write with) is mentioned below. Keep it simple. If you have a binder, just put about 10-15 sheets of looseleaf in the writing section. Always bring your Chromebook (charged and ready) to class!
Reserve a section in your binder (or notebook) for class notes. All assignments will be posted on Google Classroom. A pocket folder is suggested to keep any writing class papers in (such as the writing workshop packet, rubrics, drafts, articles, etc.).
Your work needs to have a heading and neat appearance that reflects pride of ownership. Since we use Google Classroom, please use the Times New Roman or Calibri fonts, size 14 or 16. Avoid stress by managing your time well so you are able to hand in quality work. Remember: Cursive is your friend while drafting by hand!
Take Creative Risks!
Organize your ideas to target your audience. Let your "voice" be heard when you skillfully apply word choice and sentence variety. Do this, and soon you will be crafting intriguing stories, articles, poems, essays, speeches and more...
