Writing:

We will be working on outlines, paragraphs and essays. Essays will be based off of writing prompts: at the beginning of the week the students will be given a writing prompt, (any genre) they will begin with an outline, topic sentence, move into a rough draft, then have it revised by a peer or the teacher; students will then be required to type it and turn it in via email or flash drive by the given due date, usually the Friday of the week it was assigned unless it is a larger writing project. Larger writing projects will be given a specific rubric with a specific due date. Late assignments will not be accepted.
