Welcome to English 9!
Week of 10/5- 10/9
1) First draft of story due by Wednesday to hand in
(Short story writing - fiction) *major grade for the quarter
2) Writing focus: good leads and opening lines,
effective endings, dialogue, refining the plot,
adding suspense, editing
Final copy of the short story will be late next week
after some revising work in class. May be hand-
written or typed.
Homework: should be expected about 3 nights a week and should take
15-20 minutes on average. Longer assignment will usually have extended
due dates so students can plan accordingly. Homework should be done with
thought and care and will often be a check of understanding of what
was taught in class, or a pre-thinking exercise that will be used in class the
following day. Some assignments may simply be checked for completeness;
others may be collected and graded. Assignments are always posted and
announced/explained in class.
Please contact me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
I am looking forward to a great year!
