Posted by Abby LeBaron on October 26, 2017 at 4:40pm

7th Grade Families:

Students are in the process of writing their realistic fiction narratives.  I have been reading them in parts and am excited to see them come together.  

Students can stay afterschool this Monday, 10/30 during the activity period to make up any missing work, to take a test revision /correction, or to work on their stories. Students just need to let me know they are staying by Monday morning and then be in the classroom by 2:40. 

Date:

Need to Know:

Next Steps:

Friday 10/27

Students should have a full draft of their stories (beginning, middle, and end).  

Students may access their realistic fiction narratives outside of class through the Google Classroom tool and should work on them over the weekend if they did not finish their whole draft in time.

Monday, 10/30 &

Tuesday, 10/31

Feedback & Revision work in class   

Students will have a chance to receive peer feedback as well teacher feedback.  There will be time in class to make revisions and edits, but there will not be time for them to finish writing their draft for the first time.

Realistic Fiction Narrative Due – submit through Google Classroom by “turning in”

Students can turn their work in earlier in class during the day, but they do have until Wednesday night to get it in on time.

Wednesday, 11/1

Hand in revision work or missing assignments by today in order to see influence on 1st quarter's grade (which is more of a progress report working towards 1st semester). 

Encourages students to check their grades  

Thursday, 11/2

Introduction to Unit 2/Quarter 2 work, which will be centered around Historical Fiction as a genre study and Literary Analysis essay writing later in the quarter.

Encourage students to begin thinking about selecting their next book within the genre of Historical Fiction. 

 

They will need to have their Historical Fiction JR Book in class on Monday, 11/6.
