Students began presenting their essays. As students read their essays, another student followed the directions to accomplish the task or skill. Most presentations went very well, and third period especially enjoyed the popcorn.
Students marked parts in their essays that needed clarification, and most will continue to revise and edit their essays for another day or two.
We will be starting an "Image Grammar" projects and be working on paragraph organization until the end of the year.
