Mr. Hebert- Grade 6-8 Writing

Welcome to Writing!

 Student Council meetings are held on Wednesdays at 7:30 AM in Room 307

Week of 11/13 - 11/16 :

This week, students in sixth grade will continue to work on their fiction stories. Some students are still writing first drafts; others have moved on to self- and peer-assessment of their writing. By the end of the week, all students will have begun revising their stories. I have to say: I am very impressed with their writing so far and look forward to seeing how they progress from here.

Seventh graders will be working on conducting research, taking notes, and creating and outline, all part of our unit on research-based informational writing. Towards the end of the week, some students may begin to work on first drafts.

Eighth graders should have turned in first drafts of all their pieces for the Multi-gGnre Project by Friday, November 30th. This week, we will begin to discuss revising those pieces and getting them ready for "publication" via Google Sites.

In Social Studies, we will spend Monday and Tuesday reviewing American politics in preparation for the test on Thursday.
