English 9: Week of November 4 – 8 Recap

We are currently focusing on the narrative essay.  This week we looked at writing dialogue.  The primary focus?  Students are to:  use quotation marks to set off what a character is saying; create a new paragraph each time a different character speaks; attribution (tell the reader who is speaking).

Other things we accomplished this week:  

In an effort to be better organized, each student created a binder to be kept in the classroom.

Parent Teacher Conferences – Thank you to all the students and parents who came!
