Trimester 2 Writing

Starting this trimester, no late work will be accepted. The main writing focus this trimester is argument. We will practice writing paragraphs with a counter claim and rebuttal. District 34 has purchased the full version of No Red Ink, so in addition to assignments, students should practice any areas of weakness they have in grammar and punctuation. They can also find unfamiliar topics to learn, while reviewing previously learned material. Students are expected to completely read 3 novels and review them this trimester. Expected book review due dates are: 12/13, 1/17, 2/21.
