Please bring your independent novel for reading Friday.

Today I talked to all students about written work that is passed in and the criteria necessary for junior high. Here are the expectations:

1. Quality writing always wins over quantity. Please ensure that what you write has substance.

2. Vary your word choice. When you use the same words multiple times, it means you need to use a thesaurus.

3. Please use a dark pencil that has an eraser. I correct around 200 pages of work a week and would like to keep my eyes.

4. Please do not list in a journal or writing piece. I'm listing because of the constricted space of this posting. This information is like a grocery list. In language arts writing, the paragraph indicates a new idea and thus a number is not necessary (i.e., the first thing that I, the second point I want, the third point).

5. Stick to the topic sentence. Provide evidence with what you are writing using text to self, text to text or text to world.

6. If you are given class time to work on an assignment, utilize the time. You will have limited written work to do at home if you do this.

My homework page glitch has been resolved.

Test on Wednesday October 7

Last week we discussed the 'Three T's' which consist of transitional words and phrases, topic sentence and thesis. Here are the definitions the students have:

Topic Sentence: It expresses the main idea of the paragraph. It generally states what the paragraph will be about, and comes at the beginning of the body paragraph.

Thesis: A statement that presents the writer's point of view clearly and concisely. It is usually (but not always near the beginning of the piece of writing.

Transitional words and phrases: Words that show clearly how ideas are connected with one another (e.g. therefore, as well, thus, in addition).

Please read your independent novel at home. Students were given the following assignment for their novel which is due around October 9, give or take a few days.

As you read your novel, take note of a major scene that captures your attention and imagination.

Your job is to retell this scene in your own words. You need to write a script to follow as you will be retelling the story scene to the class. You'll need at least one page of writing (double spaced).

Next, you need to make a detailed drawing of the scene to illustrate what you saw in your mind as you read. This drawing should be on 8.5' x 11' paper.

When you present to the class, you will be given three evaluations:

One for content.
One for oral presentation
One for your visual presentation.
