We are continuing to work on our informative essays, focusing on concisely developing ideas with strong, relevant quotations. For that reason, there are no regular RDWs this week! What a terrible tragedy J. However, students should be focusing instead on writing the body paragraphs for their essays. If they need to revisit some of the sources we provided, they can go the seventh-grade website at http://gmsela7.weebly.com/lab-day.html.
We will begin our lab days this week on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday with time to start writing the essay paragraphs; however, students may need to continue at home. The media center opens at 7:15, and students have access to the computers there as well. Students are encouraged to use their own flash drives, email, or Google docs to transport items home, if they have a computer to work on them there. However, student may also finish the assigned portions by hand on the printed copies from the lab.
Wednesday: 1st body paragraph due
Thursday: 2nd body paragraph due
Friday: 3rd body paragraph due
Book Talks: February 13, 2015
Thursday, February 12 (5:00-7:30)
Thanks, and have a great week!
