Write-Time Tuesday

Students received assistance writing their topic sentences. Students read their detail sentences of their rough draft, then the class offered suggestions for a basic topic sentence. After putting that on the overhead, everyone used a thesaurus and their topic sentence guide sheets to suggest improvements on structure, descriptive vocabulary, and content. The result - a messing overhead with very interesting and descriptive topic sentences.
